Hyderabad-Secunderabad - St.Josephs Cathedral



The Cathedral of Saint Joseph is located in the Gun foundry area and is perhaps the most beautiful in the twin cities. It was built around 1860 A.D. and has a distinctive Italian touch in the architecture. The towering central monument can hold a congregation of 500 people at a time. The ringing of the mammoth bell atop the structure to indicate the hours is indeed a pleasure to hear. In the main alcove inside the cathedral is an imitation of the famous 'Pieta' by Michelangelo.
