Christ Church - Review

This splendid church is located just near the Ridge in Shimla and can be reached very easily from anywhere. The Christ Church & St. Michael's Cathedral is a famous landmark of Shimla and is flocked by many devout followers from all over India. It is considered to be the second oldest church in North India. The construction of this church took around 11 long years and we know why!

The church looks absolutely magical during night when lights placed at strategic corners illuminate this beautiful church. The church glows with all its beauty and grandeur and is an amazing sight to look at. Beautifully painted stained glass form the windows of this magnificent church are worth observing.

It is a grand sight to look at and is definitely worth the visit if you are traveling to Shimla. Right next to the Church is a library that was built in the year 1910 by James Ransome. It is designed in the typical Elizabethan style and consists of a great collection of books and ancient scriptures.

But looking the Church building from a distance was more enjoyable. We sat on the bench and enjoyed being there while having snacks tea. Weather becomes cold after sunset.
