Although we did not actually get to visit inside this church when walking around Munnar after our trek to Top Station, I was intrigued to see the 'triangle' of this church, the mosque and the temple standing so close together in the town centre. Would that this coexistence of different religions might be the model across the whole world.

Nothing really special about this church. Not very old, only some 100 years or so. Looks all like a typical English church, except that you have to take off your shoes before going inside, like in hindu temples. If you already saw many churches in Europe, you can easily skip this one.

This church is little more than 100 years old & its oldness can be very deeply felt - at least I could feel it. It is build in stone, is famous for its stained glass windows, inscribed brass plates, benches made with rosewood, chandelier with elaborate decorations. It gives an old world feel that I totally loved. Those who love... More

The church is definitely worth a visit, I spent quite some time reading through all the plaques bearing names of various donors, contributors, pastors, etc. who have left their mark in this place, over more than a century and a half. For me, this was the most exciting part of it - imagining how the lives of all these people... More

Located in the main city, CSI church is a really old and a beautiful little church. It is situated at a high ground (read small hill) needing around 100 meters of driving/walking to it once you cross the security cabin located at road level. I chose to leave my car at the road level and climbed to it. It gives... More

I was having a busy day in Munnar as I was on a work trip. By chance while I was on a business visit, I cam across the Christ Church. Nestled on the hill and practically hidden by all the buildings that have come up all over Munnar, this place was a peek into the history of India (pre-independence). I... More

Like a mix of Christian and Hindu inside. Would have been much nicer if the security guard hadn't clearly asked for tips for doing nothing.
