It was a gothic church, One of the oldest in Pondicherry. As it was Christmas the church was decorated, had nice architecture and was well maintained. Close to the Rock Beach as well.
Known for its grand neo-Gothic-style façade, the Sacred Heart Church has vaulted arches and stained glass panels, depicting scenes from Christ's life (Subbayah Saai Botanical Gardens). Immaculate Conception Cathedral with its half-moon arches, ornate columns and chandeliers is full of old-world charm.
