Our Lady of Dolours Church, Dahanu, Maharashtra, India

Dahanu (Marathi: डहाणू) is a small, sleepy coastal city and a municipal council in Thane district in the western state of Maharashtra, India on the shores of Arabian Sea.

I spent the whole day yesterday (13/04/12) relaxing at resort on a Dahanu beach. These pictures of ‘Our Lady of Dolours Church’ (Our Lady of Sorrows) were taken on my way to the railway station when returning to Mumbai.

Valerian (Rozario) from Dahanu has shared these pictures of the Our Lady of Dolours Church early this year. These pictures would give you an idea of how the Church looks from inside. Here’s the email and pictures from Valerian. Thank you Valerian – God Bless.
