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.

The Angelical St. Paul’s Cathedral was built in 1847 and displays a remarkable Gothic Revival architectural design. The building suffered massive damage during an earthquake in 1934 and was rebuilt with a new design. The church’s construction is attributed to the British rule in Calcutta and is perhaps one of the few buildings with Indo-Gothic Architecture.
This colossal structure reminds you of the colonial times and takes you down the lane of history. It looks most beautiful during the Christmas holidays, when the cathedral, the garden around it as well as the surrounding streets are all bathed in light and festivities.On Christmas Eve, the cathedral performs a midnight mass and toast which is very famous, and there is literally a queue of people every year trying to get a glimpse of all the grandeur. It is a must-visit for those who seek enriching historical and architectural pleasure in their vacation trips.
A one-time great building, now mouldering, its people extinguished and ruinous upkeep neglected. What vitality its communion held now seems vitiated. Interesting internal layout atypical of Anglican architecture. Lots of good reading on the memorial stones, particularly of those who fell in the rebellion. The visitors now are 21st century Indians who must wonder what became of their old rulers and how this place inspired them, especially given the absence of Christian symbology on the exterior.
