Located close to the Victoria monument this is an easy stop. It is modeled after old English gothic architecture a lot like the cathedral at ely. When we were there they were polishing the silver and were very welcoming.

A european christian church in the heart of Kolkata. OK. It's worth a visit due to its historical significance. Actually I found it charming. The spire has gone. A few monsoons too many it seems. But for the history buff it's unmissable. It lets you know that India didn't always belong to the Indians and that now it does.

If you are in Kolkata, take your time to go inside the Cathedral. Big and beautiful structure, nice ambience.

Excellent place-truly the grandeur will mesmerize you. You can visit the place on any weekday to feel the silence. You can see the other side of the coin if you visit the place during christmas- nicely lighten up, thousands of people, sound of prayers. I would say this place is must visit if you are visiting Calcutta.

The tower of this church juts above the trees in front of the Kolkata city skyline. The church is lovely as are the gardens.

The Cathedral looks quite impressive from the exterior and the grounds are well maintained. The interior on the other hand not so much.

Unexceptional cathedral in England, but this is the cathedral of Calcutta. Cane seats, many many fans, marble plaques from the past. Burne-Jones stained glass is lovely, but very hard to see.

Again a must visit place for a Religious Enthusiast, situated near Park Street accessible by all modes of transport. One of the most famous & oldest church of Kolkata. The church is decorated & lit up very nicely during Christmas. People have to stand in queue to visit this place on Christmas Day.

Its an English style Cathedral in every sense . Well embellished on the outside and well decorated in the interior. Its an operational church so you can attend services there if you wish to.

It is an excellent replica of the original. Its conservation status is good. Only regret that the surroundings of the city there is still much to develop ...
