Perched on the same ground as the Fort Museum, the St Mary's Church is not only the oldest Anglican church but also the oldest British building in India. With a striking architecture, the church remains to be a debate of who the architect was. Whether it was Edward Foule or William Dixon, both who were gunners of the fort. The church’s’ construction is believed to have taken place in the 16th century, most probably in the years of 1678-1680 AD. The British East India Company played a leading role in the inception of this church. One of the most beautiful churches in Chennai, this church is certain to make you feel mesmerized and calm!

St Mary's Church, Chennai Reviews - Write a Review
It's an impeccable place, nestled in the history of British India. This church was associated with the lives of many influential people of their times. While here, do find some time to interact with the caretaker. He's a sober guy and if you want to know more about this fabulous church, surely you can get hold of books and pamphlets available at the counter.
Religion what is exactly that? But I am always admired beatiful religious building Here... already 350 years old church seem so brand new but I can felt the flow of time by the wall&base. May I say it zeolite? may...
I just had the opportunity to see it from outside as it was closed on Sunday afternoon so if anyone is visiting do make a note of it, well from outside it looks magnificent with the greenery surrounding it
Oldest church south of suez. That's what I liked about this. A church of great historic value. Rest all same as any other church.
This is the oldest Church East of Suez. The Records Pertaining to Baptism, Marriage etc are still maintained. There are regular services (mass) going on. The staff are very friendly and polite and help you with details.
