St. Philomena's Church in Mysore is located in the north of the city, on Cathedral Road. It was built in the honor of St. Philomena, a saint and martyr of the Roman Catholic Church. The church is relatively new as it was constructed in the year 1956. Prior to this church in this place there existed a small church that was built by the then Maharaja Mummadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar.
The architecture of the church is in Neo Gothic style which was inspired by the Cologne Cathedral in Germany. The church was designed by a Frenchman named Daly. The church has beautiful stain glass windows and twin lofty spires which are 175 feet in height.
The floor plan of the cathedral resembles a cross. The long part of the cross is congregation hall called the nave. The two arms of the cross are the transepts. The part containing the altar and the choir is the crossing.
The church can be accessed while travelling by road from Mysore to Bangalore.
