The oldest church in Bangalore began as a small chapel with a thatched roof. This was the precursor to the resplendent St Mary's Basilica, represented on this Ceramic Mug by a colourful sketch.
Christianity came to Bangalore in 18th cent but its history remained uncertain till the British defeated and killed Tipu Sultan in 1799. The St Mary's Basilica of today was born out of the small chapel built in 1803. The current Gothic style structure of St Mary's was consecrated in 1882, on Sep 8, the day on which Mother Mary was born. Its annual feast celebrated on this day is a grand affair that attracts people in large numbers.
