St. Paul's Cathedral, Kolkata Reviews
Beautiful place to go with your friends and family. This place will give you the nostalgic feeling of Kolkata. Inside the church you will get to see some old memories. You can relax your mind by only sitting there and praying to the Jesus. Outside view of the church is also great. Kids will also enjoy here.
This is one old church you need to visit. You can't get enough of that beauty once you enter inside. Raed along the history of people who were involved with this church. It's mesmerizing. You will find peace when you enter the inner sanctum. Such beautifully built church and I would call - precision. I had no words - just awe and joy.
I go there few years ago. This place is truly amazing. I love this place. I wanna try to go there in 2017 but I can't. I will try it again. Sorry because, I forget mention about the Christmas carnivals. It also amazing. If you are in Kolkata I will suggest you to go there. You really love this place.
This Cathedral holds the Seat of Diocese of Calcutta. It has the Indo-Gothic architecture in its design so that it can survive many generations within the Indian climate structure. Fantastic works on marble stones, Belgian coloured glasses on windows, paintings on the windows depicting about the life of Jesus Christ and a beautiful prayer hall define the superiority of the Church well. A real quiet place for the people who doesn't like so much crowd.
Very crowded during Christmas Eve. But in normally it is a very peaceful place, where someone can come make his mind and heart full of joy peace and happiness. So please come here and feel the blessings of Jesus Christ and make your day quite different....... Amen, merry Christmas.
