Christ Church, Shimla Reviews
One of the main tourist attraction the place is quite and the atmosphere is amazing. A good clean and managed place here. The church is more beautiful in night if you ever visit shimla then you will die on the beauty of church in night. even the whole place is awesome.
Wonderful place to visit with family and friends. Especially in evening it goes good to better to explore the local market and spend quality time on the mall road. This is the location that has been used in many movies. In 3 idiots as well.
The majestic snow clad mountains, stunningly rich greenery and the beautiful lakes in the land of shimla greet you to enjoy their timeless beauty. Certain places on earth do boast of places that equal or even surpass the beauty of Shimla. However, Shimla which is one of the holds magic in the air, which is beyond comparison. No wonder it is called the Queen of Hill Stations.
Amazing place. The place is filled with so many shops up and down of the hills .The church looks more beautiful at evening with all yellow lights .it has two way road which is well maintained and totally crowded . You can click great photos there with your family and friends
I continue to be astonished by reviews that give places like this a high rating. It is in poor condition, paint falling off, filthy on the outside, very plain on the inside, no gardens on the outside and next to no information about its history or current functionality. Churches like this are a dime a dozen in the UK and many other western countries. To make this worth visiting, provide the historical context and maintain it. A little signboard sitting against the wall, doesn't cut it.,...sute the 3idiots movie
