This one is one of the oldest Cathedrals in the country, worth a quick visit. Like many places in Calcutta the upkeep here too is not upto the mark. A quick visit however is worth.

St. Paul's Cathedral is a beautiful building with pleasant grounds. We were there after Christmas, so they had a nativity scene set up.

This is a very old Cathedral and it reminds you of the bygone days of the British in India. The cathedral is very well-maintained and looks majestic. It has a very unique architecture and stands out in the landscape of Kolkata. If you like churches, then this is a must see!

Built in Indo-Gothic style the structure has a statement to say on its own... Lush green landscape adds that extra notch to its beauty. A place to visit for sure
