Over 100 years old, the CSI church is stone made church located at Munnar town. A good place to stop over to get a view of the town of Munnar from top.

A very typical Anglican church but now with a mainly Indian congregation . The memorials to British tea-planters and their contemporaries in the church are interesting but the graveyard less so , and it is at the top of a very steep slope . A contrast with the colourful churches of the other Christian sects in Kerala , in particular... More

The Christ Church is steeped in history and had served an integral role in the colonial British era. Built of rough-hewn granite with un-plastered walls, it was constructed by the British in 1910. The stained glass windows depicting the saints and Biblical characters lends the church its unique charm. It has a number of brass plaques in memory of British... More

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
