The newly blessed Grotto of Our Lady of Mokama at Nazareth Bhawan, Sokho, is a sacred sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

The grotto is built from local stone and with the waste materials available on the campus, giving it a timeless and natural appearance. Upon entering the grotto, people are enveloped in a sense of calm and reverence.  Re.
