This cathedral, consecrated in 1718, combines classical and Gothic styles.
The Cathedral of St. Thomas is one of the most prestigious landmarks in the city of Mumbai. Built in 1718, the cathedral is a standing example and symbol of the early British settlement.
The Cathedral was built in an effort to maintain and possibly improve the standards of the British settlement. The first Anglican Church in the city, St. Thomas Cathedral holds tremendous religious significance for the Christian population of Mumbai. The Cathedral is bedecked with exquisite embellishments and is a towering monument representing peace and solitude.
This church was named after St. Thomas, who was one of the 12 Disciples of Christ and who was also the apostle to India. Most of the monuments inside the Cathedral are a witness to Bombay's regal history, although the building is now slowly disintegrating in parts. Here, Holy Communion is held every Sunday at 8:40 AM.
