Known for its beautiful architecture, and quintessential colonial style design, St. John’s Church remind us of time when British rule was prominent here. Built in 1787, the church has been reinstated with stone columns and portraits that will just leave you awe-inspired. To back the breathtaking architecture, there is a lovely premises decked with greens and monuments. Lush surrounding, large statues and quiet ambience makes coming here such a bliss for everyone. The place is also home to the mesmerising ‘Last Supper’ painting drew by artist Johann Zoffany along with memorials of those who served here for the time. For anyone who is interested in the history, this is a must place to visit.
