Mount Mary Church Tours

Mount Mary Church
Sitting on a hill overlooking the Arabian Sea, Mount Mary Church is one of the most important churches in the city. It attracts people of all faiths, particularly during the annual Bandra Fair, which is held every September. The church is a great place to escape the hectic city and take a little time for peace and quiet reflection.
 
The Basics
Mount Mary’s Church features semi-Gothic architecture, with twin bell towers and a stone edifice. Inside are a domed sanctuary and a nave with intricate teak wood carvings and Mangalore tiles. The church is a bit off the beaten path and group tours don’t often stop there, but independent travelers and those on private tours who opt for a visit will be in for a treat.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Dress modestly, with clothes that cover your knees and shoulders.
  • Don’t take photos or walk around during mass.
  • Non-Catholics and those who have not received First Communion in the Catholic tradition are requested not to take the Eucharist. 
 
How to Get There
Mount Mary Church is located in Bandra, just off the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and a 10-minute walk from Bandra Fort. It takes 30 to 90 minutes to reach from the Fort area by car from Colaba, or an hour via public transportation (a mix of buses and trains).
 
When to Get There
Mass at Mount Mary Church is held four to six times per day, with special services around Easter, Holy Week, and Christmas. The Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, held annually on September 8, is the busiest time of year here; it is followed by the annual Bandra Fair, when vendors set up food shops and stalls selling religious artifacts.
 
Christianity in India
Christianity is the third-largest religion in India, after Hinduism and Islam. European colonialism played a large role in spreading Christianity—particularly Catholicism, Anglicanism, and Presbyterianism—but Christianity has been in India for far longer. It was probably first introduced to the country by Thomas the Apostle, who is believed to have gone to Kerala only a couple of decades after the death of Christ.
Address: Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount,, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Cultural & Heritage tour of the beautiful Bandra village-with Guide & Transport.

star-5
An island village neighbouring the erstwhile Mumbai Heptanesia, Bandra or Bandor as the Portuguese called it, was originally a collection of 24 villages inhabited by the Kolis or the fisherfollk community. In the 16th and 17th century many of these villages converted to Catholicism owing to the Portuguese rule. These converts were christened as East Indian by the British and form the backbone of Bandra’s cultural ethos. The years following independence, the paddy fields and vegetable plantations gave way to bungalows and apartments, of the rich and the famous which made Bandra the Beverly Hills of Mumbai. Despite the urbanisation, there still exists another Bandra made of villages which reminds of the Bandor of yesteryears. This tour pays homage to the East Indians community - their way of life, history and culture.
