  • Good historic place. But don't trust Google maps here, it will take you to different place where you can't enter. Check for the nearest place and put directions for that, so that you can reach the place or else it will take you to backside of the campus. If you make route for "Brio Cafe' and Grill" it will take you to proper route, from this place the church entrance way is 50 metres.
  • Excellent art style. The paintings inside chapel are incredibly beautiful and well maintained. P.S-Unable to upload pictures of the paintings as photography is prohibited inside chapel.
