Tallest Gothic Church in Asia....

Our Lady of Doloures Basilica


This is a beautiful Gothic church located in Thrissur, Kerala, India. While the beauty of this church is the intricate Gothic detailing and its pristine feel in an all-white scheme, the speciality is that, it is acclaimed to be the tallest and biggest Gothic church in Asia.






The interiors showcase beautiful frescoes and wall paintings in biblical themes.


Vaulted Ceilings, intricate detailing on the altars and rose windows are the prime features of Gothic architecture.
