Mount Mary Church is an ancient church, built in 1640 and then rebuilt in 1761. The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount is also an important religious place in Mumbai. What adds to the charm of this church even more is that it is sited on top of a hill known as ‘Sunderban Bandra’, which overlooks the mighty Arabian Sea.
It is believed that the church has healing powers and for this reason, the church is often flocked by devotees. It is also said that those who sincerely pray at the Mount Mary Church often get their wishes fulfilled. The ‘Bandra Fair’ or the ‘Feast of Mount Mary’ is a week-long celebration held every September at the Mount Mary Church and is the best time to visit.
