Location: Cathedral Catholic Church
Cathedral Catholic Church, also known as the Cathedral of Mary Help of Christians, is a beautiful shrine located in the heart of Shillong. This cathedral falls under the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Shillong, which administers similar shrines in Meghalaya’s Khasi and Jaintia hills. The construction of the present shrine was started after the first church built at this site got destroyed in a fire in 1936. In order to ensure that the cathedral is earthquake resistant, rock trenches were filled with sand and a strong foundation was laid. This cathedral was given the status of a shrine in 1980, on completion of the Catholic Church’s 100 years in North East India.
