More than being just a religious centre, this is a church with a rich history. The world’s first Anglo Indian museum is situated here. The remains of the church, the adjacent St. Paul Cemetery and the Press, destroyed during the onslaught of Tipu Sultan, have been preserved at the Sambaloor History Museum. Also housing the burial chambers of some of the famous saints of yesteryear, the St. Francis Xavier’s Church, is a must see for all those religiously and historically inclined.
