Visited around 5:45pm. There was nobody around. Just walked round the closed church and came off. Cannot give any rating since we were unable to see the inside, except the graves outside. Premises is well kept.

He prayed for our safety on our vacation, and is a really wonderful man. Meeting him was a highlight. After this we... More

However, we spent about half an hour wandering around the churchyard reading the headstones and really feeling privileged to do so, we felt as if we were touching the social history of... More

Well maintained,Worth a visit. Like so much here, it's a lesson in history. More than 100 years old pipe piano and old pews and furniture are very attractive

Nuwara Eliya was called Little England by the British during their period in Ceylon (1815 - 1948) because this area resembled the countryside in England. The British also came to Nuwara Eliya to escape the heat in when it was hot in other areas of Ceylon (As it was known in... More

though catering to an impoverished congregation , this colonial monument stands in a superb location and could do with an injection of cash to improve its surrounding fencing / restore the lychgate ( unique in these parts)
