The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount, commonly called as the Mount Mary Church by the locals, is a Roman Catholic Church situated atop a hillock 262 feet above sea level and is one of the finest specimens of its kind. Located in the suburbs of the vibrant city of Mumbai, the church enjoys a stunning view of the joyfully bustling Arabian Sea as it beautifully reflects different shades of blue.
Standing tall for centuries, the Mount Mary Church is visited by people of all faiths to attain some peace and tranquillity. The road that leads to the church is flanked by small shops that sell flowers, candles and other offerings of worship. However, the most unusual offerings are the wax figurines that are sold outside the church. People appeal to Mother Mary by offering her a wax figurine of what they desire- a house, a car, etc. The basilica is a truly grand, yet humble edifice made from nothing but stone.
