The great thing about this Church is that it was built by the Hindu Maharajah of Mysore for his Christian subjects. Religious tolerance is one of the greatest features of the Wodeyar ruling family. This dynasty has been ruling in this region for the last six hundred years except for a brief period of nearly thirty years when Muslim Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan reigned and persecuted Hindus.
Although the Kings are not recognized by the Government of India, the people revere and adore their King.
