St George's Cathedral Reviews & Ratings
St.Georges cathedral one of the oldest church in Chennai built in 1815. It's so beautifully built and Well maintained it has the oldest organ too. Best place for a wedding. It has different services The congregation have there owned funeral area. Spacious car and bike parking. It's one of the grandest church I've seen in chennai
A church which celebrated its bicentenary recently... It has it's own long-standing history... The church constructed by the Anglicans during the pre independence era... Still stands tall
Another architectural marvel in Chennai . Must visit. The marbel statues inside the church are breathtaking. The cemetery has some ancient British graves and tombs. Please maintain the sanctity if visiting the cemetery.
The Cathedral is over 200 years old but with one coat of paint it will look like it was built only yesterday because it is well maintained - the lawns aren't maintained as much though. I can't say that the Cathedral is beautiful but There's so much character in the Cathedral. It looks so grand. There are plaques to commemorate people who have passed away -on the walls right from the entrance till the end of the prayer hall. It is quite interesting to read them all - each plaque offers a glimpse into the life of that person being remembered. You will also find plaques commemorating British Officers who were murdered during the Freedom Struggle by Rebel Freedom Fighters. You can say that the walls are almost like a mini museum. The vintage furniture too looks like it has been there for very long but it is solid - I never found them creaking. You could get lost just by looking at it and being in it. It calms your nerves.
Requires a good amount of maintenance. Lacklustre service. Plenty of historical value
