St. Mary Basilica
mary basilicaThough the origins of the shrine of St. Mother Mary reverentially referred to as "Our Lady of Health," can be traced to A.D. 1685, it was in 1882 that the present structure was built by a French priest, Fr. Kleiner. A grand gothic style basilica, with an impressive tower and typically
gothic pointed arches, the church was given the status of a Basilica.

(then the Sixth in India) in 1973 through a Papal order by Pope John Paul VI by virtue of an apostolic brief in October 3, 1973. Situated opposite the Russel Market Square in the midst of Bowring Hospital, and Shivajinagar bus station, the church has an interesting story associated with it. According to the local folk lore the garden city of Bangalore was once struck by a plague epidemic in the late 19th Century. Prayers to the original shrine led to an end to the epidemic and this is the reason why Mother Mary is also referred to as Plagueamma. Adjacent to the basilica, is the Shrine of Miraculous Mary, before which lakhs of devotees from all faiths, clad in beige, kaavi, and orange, pay their obeisance. The scene is spectacular in the month of September when the St Mary's Feast is celebrated. Masses are held throughout the day from 5:30 in the morning to 5 in the evening. A unique feature of the feast is the mass marriage which is arranged on September 1 every year by the basilica.
