went around 11:40 and the doors were all closed. I knew that they'll close at 12 for lunch but wasn't expecting it to be close 20 mins before stated timing. didn't get to see the interior but the exterior was pretty awesome.

I visited the church on a Sunday while a service was taking place, it is a beautiful church and it was nice to the church actually being used. The disappointing aspect was the dress-sense of some visitors, they should respect that they are entering a...More
