Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges, Pondicherry

Church · Tourist Spot
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.
