The Church is very nice and beautiful, but not well maintained, The carvings are very intricate. The altar and the carvings are coated with dust. They should keep these priceless heritages properly for the future generations.

It was an unique experience to visit St.Paul's Church, The entry to the Church it self was very imposing , the wood carved door , the hand painted stations of the cross, the exquisite wooding alter , magnificent ceiling. It is really a place worth visiting would request the Govt to allocate funds for maintenance and restoration
