Lady Des Angels – Notre Dames Church Catholic in Pondicherry, India. Notre Dame Des Anges is the replica of Basilica at Lourdes in Southern France. The building catches the eye with its stunning stonework. To add more dazzle in the stone, limestone was mixed with egg whites. This is one of the most popular and important Churches of Pondicherry (Puducherry). The church was founded in 1686 and served as a Parish Church until 1729. Visiting Notre Dame Des Anges during the mass prayers is one beautiful experience.
