About St. Paul's Cathedral, Kolkata
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.

St. Paul's Cathedral, Kolkata Reviews
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!
The moment you enter the church gate, peace and tranquility embraces you. The vastness of the place makes you feel infinite, the air around the church seems so fresh and pious. The scenic beauty is undeniably impressive. Inside the church there is a huge hall where people sit and pray. The ambiance is extremely serene and soothing. The architectural brilliance is beyond description!
Peaceful and serene environment. Beautiful architecture. Their gates are open for everyone. The gardens are well maintained and they grow seasonal flowers. The church administration is very diligent. They guide everyone through the various rooms with exhibits. The crowd is always well mannered and moves smoothly. Lovely place for a calm afternoon.
A must watch but low profile destination of Kolkata. once you enter in the premises you will think that you are really in London. The structure is very charming. Inside the church atmosphere is very pleasant as like all other churches. Well connected with Metro rail and buses.
It remains quintessential iconic Calcutta landmark. I have been an irregularly regular visitor for more than half a century when the present day Kolkata was still Calcutta. Time stands still here. It is peaceful, awesomely beautiful and why should it not be? God made this place and I know he lives here too!!!
