St Mary’s Basilica Bangalore – Beauty Lies Here

The description of Bangalore would not be complete if I did not mention about my trip to St Mary’s Basilica Bangalore. Even though I am not a big fan of God and the deities, I did like the spacious gothic church which had the addition of French architecture and is built in the form of a cross. The magnificent tower of the church was glazing up in the sky creating an allure of its own. I had heard so much about the place and it was finally my moment to see the beaming church. I was extremely excited before I finally reached the place.

The beautiful sculpture of Mother Mary holding baby Jesus in her arms created a sense of attractiveness. The sculpture was right outside the church so that there is no penetration of evil vibes and it also creates a source of inspiration for people. The most awesome feeling for me was when I looked closely at the sculpture outside the gate, I came to know that Mother Mary was not wearing a dress; it was a typical ‘sari’ in which she was covered. I didn’t know how to react as I couldn’t judge whether it was hilarious moment or moment of understanding.

The moment passed on and so did I. I went inside the church and there was another immense structure known as Statue of Our Lady. The miraculous story behind it was much more elegant than the masterpiece. It is believed that the church was attacked once and every little piece of the church was destroyed except that very statue. When the miscreants tried to pull it down, they were stuck blind. Soon, the police force was able to catch them.

I had no words to describe the glorious architecture of St Mary’s Basilica Bangalore. The French did leave some jewel back and the presence of this church was the prime of them. After completing the sightseeing process, I took some time and prayed to omnipotent being. I was completely satisfied with my journey and was ready to pick my bags again and travel to some new destination. That next destination was for me was Lalbagh botanical garden.
