Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges, Pondicherry

4.3
#3 of 18 in Historic Sites in Pondicherry
Explore Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges, a luminous church whose front faces the rising sun over the Bay of Bengal. The Capuchin Franciscan order had built three churches prior to this one, of which all were destroyed under somewhat political circumstances. The fourth model's foundation, engineered by Louis Guerre, was made of brickwork, sand, and lime mortar, so that huge walls and semi-circular arches could rise firm and tall. As you enter this place of worship, notice its little garden near the sea, where an armored statue of Joan of Arc stands in the middle. Inside, listen to choir music and absorb the calming atmosphere.

  • Peace laden place. A Church so huge, beautiful, in the heart of the city, located at the Mission Street. Worth time spending here. The Church is very picturesque but photography is quite prohibited inside so you need to be better careful. You'll find some people opening shoes outside the Church but again that's not mandatory you can walk around the church the way you want. Hope you'll love it.
  • This church is one of the most popular religious places of Pondycherry. It is a treasure house of the ancient art - murals on the wall, statuettes, paintings inside the hall and beautiful vast campus. The originality of an old french construction is impressive. Serenity and peaceful atmosphere here is quite appealing. this is easily accessible by sea side promenade, it’s a beautiful church with everything in white.
