St Paul's Cathedral is a grandiose Anglican cathedral of the Victorian age - the kind you would see in Europe, with beautiful stained glass windows and frescoes. While this is no doubt a mesmerizing architecture, I could see this needs restoration in different places. Nonetheless, go here, spend a quite time with yourself and wouldn't regret it.

Remember it is a Cathedral, having Bishop's seat. Visit this great place not in X-mas only - do visit when you have time to appreciate the art and beauty - and What Christianity offers to mankind.

St. Paul's Cathedral is very close to Victoria Memorial. This is place is one of the legendary Cathedral of our country. The classic architecture is simply mesmerising. It stands to be very peaceful inside to spend time praying and remembering the Almighty God! Must visit place.

St Paul's Cathedral is the typical large, grandiose Gothic Christian church you will see in Europe, with beautiful stained glass windows and frescoes and monument. But then again, not. Its walls need repainting, the frescoes need to be restored and the windows cleaned. But then again, not. As an Anglican Cathedral in a non-Anglican country, it would lose its unique... More

Perhaps at the time of its construction it looked like it belonged there but now it's an odd Victorian church in the middle of Calcutta. Inside is very much like any church but with a bit of local English history.

I guess I was expecting the richness of a Catholic Cathedral and was surprised that it was not. The building is imposing outside but feels very "cold" inside

St Paul’s Cathedral, situated on Cathedral Road, was built between 1839 and 1847 A.D.The cathedral is a good example of Neo-Gothic or the Gothic Revival style of architecture that was greatly patronized by the British-Raj era. Beautiful architecture and exquisite mural painting simply captures the attention of the beholder. The life and work of St. Paul is vividly described in... More

This place was built so that the British officers and there family could pray and conduct the various religious activities during there stin in Kolkata. Massive building consisting of quite a few statues each shouting history. The huge cross in the alter will definetely make bow your head with respect no matter which religion you practice.
