Sacred Heart Cathedral is one of the oldest churches in the city with the house of the Bishop. The foundation of the church was laid in 1849 by Father Cori at Father Caros’s wish and the work was carried forward by Father Piccinelli and later Brother Lamoth and completed the work in 1864.

The church was renovated several times. The tabernacle of the church is placed as a pearl inside a shell to depict that Jesus is the pearl of the land.
