The cathedral is a classic English design having being built in the colonial era. It's a rare example in India but nothing unique across the world. It's also filthy and in need of extensive conservation and restoration. The UK is awash with this style of cathedral and its not a patch on the Italian masterpieces. Interesting enough to visit but... More

This church is one of the oldest and famous churches in India. Very beautiful but not well maintained. Centrally located and easily accessible from any location in Allahabad.

The massive cathedral had about 20 people in it. It was easily big enough to have allowed the eager locals outside to worship. The cathedral itself was... More

Unfortunately it was closed for Christmas decoration when we visited, but we managed to peer through a broken window to catch a sight of the breathtaking cathedral. The garden staff were friendly and helpful.

The Gothic style of architecture of the All... More
