Mummadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar built a church here in 1843. However, the present structure dates back to 1933 when Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar laid its foundation.

The church was designed by a Frenchman named Daly and built in a Neo Gothic style with inspiration drawn Cologne Cathedral, Germany.

The St. Philomena’s Church is now a heritage building and a tourist attraction. There are more places to visit in Mysore, please read and comment your valuable suggestions.
