The St. Mary's Basilica was built in 1818, just as a small chapel by Abbe Dubois. Later in 1882, Rev. L.E. Kleiner renovated to the ornate Gothic style. It was adorned with stained glass windows , which were imported from Paris.
The St. Mary’s Basilica was awarded the status of sixth Basilica in India by the Papal Order by Pope John Paul V1.

To this day, people from all religions, caste or creed pay homage and prayers to the St. Mary. Many offer prayers after their wishes have been granted.
