Our Lady of Angels Church Pondicherry is the only church in the city where mass is celebrated every Sunday in three languages – Tamil, English, and French. Napoleon III built the original structure that was inspired by Greco Roman architecture in 1855. The premises of the wondrous church have two pillars, which housed clocks that struck every two hours and sang Ave Maria. They are, however, no longer functional. The church has undergone several changes such as the humongous bells procured from France do not ring anymore as they caused neighboring buildings to vibrate beyond what they were constructed to endure. Despite the upgrades and renovations, you will enjoy the peace and serenity while sitting inside the church.
