St. John In The Wilderness, Mcleod Ganj Reviews
A very old cathedral which I have seen since my childhood days. Even now when I visit my hometown, I definitely go there. Must visit and contribute to the maintenance of the church. However lately, irresponsible people have destroyed the place completely. Garbage, empty beer bottles, chips packets and all are strewn all around. Please visit but do not kill this hidden treasure. Preserve it. Be responsible citizens.
A beautiful church, literally in the middle of the wilderness. A 10 minute walk from the main McLeodganj market. Walking is the best way to get there as there can be a lot of traffic. The church is compact and seems full of history. Services are held both in English and Hindi at different times. Visitors are welcome all day but can’t enter the main church area if a service is on. Well worth the visit.
One of the oldest church in North India. Built by the British during their reign. It has a cemetery in the backyard. Worth a visit.
St. John in the Wilderness is a cathedral Church built in 1852 and still is in a good condition... It's having a Graveyard aside it which is one of the kind ...The place is located along the way to McLaud Ganj ..So if you want to have a glimpse of an old monument do visit here ...The peace and relaxation are gift given to us by the almighty when we visit here ..If you want to sit back and relax under the shade of God this is the best place ...
Beautiful old monument located in the wilderness. It's a really old church. You can trek to the church or take local auto to reach there.
