Good Shepherd ChurchEdit

Built about more than 20 years ago, the church stands between the fish market and two lanes. It is a Roman Catholic church dedicated to the Good Shepherd or Jesus Christ. The structure of the church can be described as a modern structure. The church has undergone many changes in the past few years, one of the notable changes is the construction of the Blessed Sacrament and the wall behind the altar made of strong marble. The church was built in the late 1980s. It is built next to theSarita Lawns Convent. The Church and the Convent share the same ground, except that it has been separated by a wall. At the left hand side of the church is an empty marshland. There are a lot of controversies surrounding this empty marshland plot, one of which was based on a dispute with the landlord, who now wants to construct a building. Of late the marshland has been converted to a dry barren land, with not much grass. The fish market and the church together form an L-shaped structure securing this plot.

St. Louis LaneEdit

St. Louis lane is located at the second cross lane, from the Lokhandwala signal. It is a private lane, and is symbolized by its St. Louis Convent. There are five buildings in this lane which make up the complex, namely Indra Sukh, Indra Darshan, Daswani, Popular and Blue Arch. The street here has undergone many changes in the past and boasts of its cleanliness as compared to other lanes in Four Bungalows. The convent, which is a girl's school, was built back in the 1970s. The convent itself has gone under many changes through the past few years. It is also called Convent Avenue Lane.

The St. Louis schoolEdit

The lane is normally very quiet except when there are children going to and from the school. The school is a high school up to the tenth grade. The school itself boasts of cent percent results almost every year. The school is a convent run by the Carmelite nuns. the building is composed of a three story structure which is L-shaped. In the 1970s, the school was just being built. At that time, the building consisted of only the ground floor. As funds floored in, the authorities managed to build it is into what it is today.
