About "St. Mary's Church Madurai"

St. Mary's Cathedral, built around 150 years back is an architectural marvel which is a blend of various forms of European and continental style. It is located near to the Tirumala Nayak Mahal, in the old Koyavar Palayam Road. Founded in 1840, the church dedicated to Viagulamatha, was originally known as Viagulamatha Koil. The new church was constructed during 1916. When Madurai Diocese was created in 1938, St. Mary's Church was raised to the status of a pro-Cathedral and the Bishop's throne was installed. The church was elevated to the status of Cathedral on 1969. The notable feature of the church is the two tall elegant bell towers constructed in Roman style which is at a height of 42 meters.
