  • Beautiful and Serene place. Amid tall pine Forest and serpentine roads, a place far from the hustle bustle of the mall road. Spend time in the morning or the evening, the church seems to have a life of its own. Romantic if you visit with your partner 😎. Thought provoking if visit solo. Just sit and enjoy the cooling aroma of the woods.

  • A very very energetic place you can pray in the church and you can feel positive vibration all over you very calm place In the surroundings you find trees with height of 30 feet The church is open from 9 a.m. to 5 pm you can pray, you can meditate here, the seats are very comfortable here, I feel the holy spirit in me, it is made up of a Granite mix stone, granite is a stone which can transmit radiation and due to this this place has very high vibrations. You can pray here without hesitation No 1 stops you. I pray here for 15 minutes and I can see

  • Very close to the main square of McLeod Ganj. I walked to the church which would have been enjoyable but for the traffic on the road. The architecture is gothic which makes it stand out. The view of the valley from the back of the church is also worth the visit.

  • A church befitting its name. The best time to visit is early morning before it gets really crowded. Reading plaques and epitaphs take you back into history. The quality of construction of 19th century dwarfs that of today. The graves around the church add up to the historical importance. A good parking is available but in the absence of any board etc people end up parking on roadside.

  • What a place to visit .. nearby chick n vary heart-to-heart type feeling Long enough pine trees look above with them and feel what it is all about ..
