St. Paul's Cathedral - Review

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.

Kolkata’s most looked forward to attraction, the St. Paul's Cathedral is the epitome of colonial architecture. Being a place of worship there are no St. Paul's Cathedral ticket prices, so you are not required to buy any St. Paul's Cathedral Tickets. However, we have some great tours in and around the cathedral, which cover the Tickets for St. Paul's Cathedral as well.

St. Paul's Cathedral, Kolkata Reviews

  • Amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, there is one place which can offer you peace of mind and solace. This cathedral in Kolkata welcomes you with open arms, irrespective of the religious beliefs that you hold. It's enormous in size and also has ample sitting space. Simply enjoy the tranquility by sitting inside this church. You may also purchase books about Jesus and Bible. If you would like to offer prayers, then you are advised to visit during the prayer times. Highly recommended.😊

  • St. Paul's Cathedral is a place which seems to be far away from the city life. A serene and beautiful place to spend time after a long and tiring day. You can sit inside the Cathedral also at limited timings. On Christmas and New Year, it feels like the exact place one should be to celebrate the special occasions. There's no entry fee, nor any restrictions. Anyone can come to Jesus to pray. However photography is prohibited inside the Church. It is a must visit place for people coming to Kolkata- the city of Joy.

  • Beautiful & Serene!! This is a perfect place to calm your mind & seek some peace amidst the hustle & bustle of the city. The gates are opened to everyone irrespective of religion. Beautiful architecture, has a well maintained garden & also very conveniently located. It's a must visit, especially on Christmas Eve.

  • One of the oldest cathedral church of India.The major attractions are the pictorial depiction of Jesus Christ's life and various art of Fresco. Unfortunately photography is prohibited inside,even mobile has to be in a silent mode. But the entire atmosphere is so calm and serene that it can satisfy your mind instantly.

  • A remnant of the old colonial architecture in Calcutta. Surprisingly it's well kept! This church is breathtaking in it's expanse and artistry. The area is surrounded with this air of spirituality. One need not be a believer to feel the calming vibes. The high spires are visible markers in the cityscape. If you haven't visited it please do especially during Christmas!
