I did not go on a tour. Just walked in. Obviously I now realise I missed a lot. I'm not really religious, but recommend visiting. External grounds at front are impressive.

The outside part of the church showcases its big and imposing structure, an old church yet modernized in design. It offers a wow-worthy view which is perfect for picture taking. The inside is very simple, having small chapels and a simple altar.
