St Andrew's Church, Chennai Reviews - Write a Review
Probably one of the best architectural marvels amongst church buildings in the world. The grandeur and enormity of the structures especially the pillars, both outside and inside the church make you feel humble and gives you a perspective of the place that you hold with this life in this multiverse. Services are all in English and western styled. Unlike the recent churches that make church service an English rock show service at this church is calm and soul stirring. Many good old people to speak to and get volumes of knowledge. A must visit place for any person who is in search of himself or as a traveling stop.
If you can't afford to go to St.Martin in fields in London you can come and see the grand Roman architecture here. Modification as circular structure adds grandeur. Community centre offering tailoring course open to all is also here.
Really Feel Proud of Madras For Having such beautiful Architectures...
European style architecture.
Excellent piece of Scottish architecture. The church elders not only maintain the historic monument well, but they also produce vibrant services in many ways.
