Located near Victoria Memorial , the St. Paul’s cathedral is a colonial era church with magnificent architecture. It is the first Episcopal church in the whole of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Burma. It was built in the model of a cathedral in England and after the spire and other parts were destroyed by earthquakes it was rebuilt in the Canterbury model. It is an island of tranquillity amidst the madness of Kolkata.

St. Paul's Cathedral, Kolkata Reviews - Write a Review
If you want to witness classical European architecture without leaving the comfort of your own country, please do visit St. Paul's Cathedral. Not only is the architecture staggeringly beautiful but also is the ambiance sublimely peaceful. Imagine a cathedral in your mind and you will find St. Paul's Cathedral to be an exact ditto of your imagination. Could be more clean, the only issue.
Its is one of the oldest Cathedrals and also a landmark of Kolkata. This is the best examples of Colonial architecture. The cathedral & surrounding area is very well maintained. It looks very beautiful with the stained glass windows. The atmosphere very silent and peaceful.
Very well maintained church. I had visited this place in April 2017 and I liked this place for it's cleanliness and beauty. This place is a holy place for all of us. We should also contribute this place by keeping this place environment clean. Happy visiting to this place.
One of the oldest Cathedrals and also a landmark of Kolkata. Situated at the heart of the city, it is surrounded by some other heritage sites too. It's very calm and quite in there. Photography is prohibited inside the Cathedral, except the premises. It is a great place to spend your time if you are looking for a place to take shelter while waiting for someone...😉
Very nice place, but could've been better maintained. I love the ambience though. It's open to all, like any church.
