St. Bartholomew’s Church: Built in 1830 during the early colonial era in India, St. Bartholomew’s Church holds the distinction of being the oldest cathedral of Mysore. The church was built in memory of Saint Bartholomew who is believed to be one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus. It was established during the reign of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III, the then King of Mysore, on a piece of land gifted by the king for the holy purpose.
