Marks Cathedral is situated on the busy M.G. Road of Bangalore. The
foundation of this cathedral was laid down in the year 1808 and the
construction work was completed in 1812. However, it was only in 1816
that St. Marks Cathedral got consecrated by the Bishop of Calcutta. The
cathedral was first expanded in the year 1901 and then reconstructed in
1927. The architecture of St. Marks Cathedral is inspired, to quite an
extent, by the 17th century St Paul's Cathedral.
Built in the colonial style of architecture, it stands adorned with a
semicircular chancel, having a huge, magnificent dome. The Roman arches
embellishing the walls of the cathedral add to its splendor. Saint
Mark's Cathedral boasts of having one of the best-maintained external
bells amongst all the churches in the Bangalore city of India. The
exquisite woodwork as well as the intricate carving merges beautifully
with its elegant ceilings and domes. Even the stained glasswork of the
cathedral adds to its beauty.
