The church is particularly merry on Easter and Christmas, when its choir performs carols and musical concerts in English, Hindi and even Tamil.

With two 40 metre-high minarets on both sides, onion-shaped marble domes, and an aesthetic usage of red sandstone and white marble, it is easily amongst the fascinating Mughal-era mosques in India. Constructed in the 17th century, the mosque can hold about 25,000 individuals. There’s nothing as spectacular as the sight of flocks of pigeons flying around its huge central courtyard.
