About Mount Mary Church

Situated in the Bandra area of Mumbai, Mount Mary Church, also known as 'The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount' is a Roman Catholic Church dedicated to 'Virgin Mary'. The history of the church dates back to 16th century when the church edifice was first brought to the location by Jesuit priests from Portugal, and a chapel was constructed around it. But in 1700, Arab pirates raided the place and disfigured the statue by cutting off its right arm. It was eventually reinstated in 1760 with a statue of Our Lady of Navigators, the statue of whom was found by a Koli fisherman who had a dream of finding a floating statue in the sea. The church stands atop the Sunderban Bandra hill and over the mighty Arabian Sea, which makes it a rather delightful place to visit. The church is believed to have healing powers and devotees from all over the world visit the church to pray. If a person is suffering from an ailment of a particular organ, they should carry the wax statue of that part of their body and dedicate it to Mother Mary and they are going to be healed. The best time to visit the church is during the 7-day 'Bandra Fair' or the 'Feast of Mount Mary.' in September when the entire church is lit up with lights and festoons. There are food and snack stalls all around the place with kiosks selling artifacts, candles and wax statues shaped as different parts of the body.

Pro Tip: Prayers for people with special needs are performed on Sundays
