History of the Pilgrim Centre of
 
The Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption in Secunderabad India is a minor basilica. The decree designating it as a basilica was issued on 7 November 2008. It belongs to the diocese of Hydrabad.

It is located on Sarojini Naidu Road in Secunderabad. It owes its early history to Father Daniel Murphy along with Bishop Carew. St. Mary's Church was completed in 1950. This church was formerly called the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad. In 1886 it ceased to be a cathedral. 

St. Mary's Church bears resemblance to an old Irish Chapel. Curved arches and pointed buttresses are the hallmark of the St. Mary's basilica as also the four bells that were brought from Italy. It exhibits Gothic architecture from the outside but is relatively simpler inside. Stained glass windows and altars for Mother Mary and St. Patrick along with the main altar for Christ are attractions of this basilica.
