Good Shepherd Church (Roman Catholic), Andheri West, Mumbai

 I recently attended a wedding of an ex-colleague at the Good Shepherd Church in Andheri West, Mumbai. It is a Roman Catholic Church consecrated in 1985 and serves the local Catholic community in the Four Bungalows and Andheri Lokhandwala areas.

Architecturally there is nothing outstanding about the building, it appears more like a fight for space in the space stricken city of Mumbai. But never the less its a place of worship and has a great sentimental value for people who worship here so that's what makes it beautiful.

Scenes from Bible painted on the back wall

Saints painted on the windows and Chandeliers on the roof. Not sure of the reason for conical ceiling.
