St Paul's

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.

Both the outside and inside view is awesome. The main hall is very spectacular and the sparrows flying from one wall to another is nice aswell.

If you want to feel the inner peace and tranquility then this is the right place to visit just when the sun goes down. The walk through the boulevard and the church will take to a different timezone far away from the hustle and bustle of the city

It is a beautiful place to visit in Kolkata. The Cathedral is well maintained and very peaceful. Every year I make sure I visit this place before I start my Christmas celebration.

A nice cathedral built in a quiet park. The inside is not very interesting, but it's a good place to take a break from noise and traffic

Very beautiful, old & tall cathedral. Liked it so much. A huge hall for mass & well constructed. It is just nearby to the planetarium & opp of Victoria Memorial

Saw the cathedral and was awestruck! Comparable to any Cathedral in the West. The place is well maintained and has a very significant historical background. Must visit.

Perhaps the best Cathedral In India. Immaculately maintained & in a great location. Beautiful, bright white. Well worth visiting this monument

St Paul's stands amongst trees & hints at calm & peace amid the city. The Cathedral is a haven of calm with a long colonial history. It harks back to another time but is still well kept & imposing - worth a visit when in Calcutte
