Worth a visit, but does not have the uniqueness of some churches in India. Has a definite part to play in the history of Calcutta.

It was one of the first church to come up in Kolkata. During Christmas it is thronged by all devotees. You can not resist admiring its breathtaking inner decoration. Amolak Rattan Kohli Former Governor Of Mizoram

What a fabulous church in lovely grounds. The organ and embellishments in the church were nothing short of wonderful. Worth taking the time to read some of the memorial plaques displayed in the church. History on display, literally!

This beautiful church played a large role in the original colonization of the British. The guide we had was a wealth of information. The memorial to the Black Hole of Calcutta is also on the grounds but is not highlighted very much.

The architectural style of the Church is mesmerizing. The spire holds a giant clock, which is wound every day. Large beautiful windows allow the sunlight to filter through the coloured glass. Sitting a while inside the Church brings absolute peace in mind. .
