Built between 1839 and 1847, St Paul's Cathedral is one of India's most important churches. It's east of the Victoria Memorial at the South end of the Maidan. The steeple fell during an earthquake in 1897 and was redesigned and rebuilt. Inside there's some interesting memorials and stained glass, including the west window by Sir Edward Burne-Jones.

It was my visit to any cathedral. I don't know whether the time was not good, or it is a constant thing, but the smell irritated me lot. However the central area was very peaceful and calm - made me feel some happiness and satisfaction. All in all, it's a good experience.

The church situated very near to Victoria Memorial and Birla Mandir is classic. The interior and the seating arrangement for the diplomats and heads of different country will attract you

I've been to many churches around the world, but St. Paul's Cathedral will always remain my favourite, not only for its ambience and tranquillity, but also due to its sanctity. People from all religions and all faiths can walk up to the Father and feel blessed while walking out of the Church. Fantastic place!

Well a Church of England cathedral in the middle of Kolkata. Very large for India for this sort of thing. Built in the old colonial days. Still impressive.
