If you want to witness classical European architecture without leaving the comfort of your own country, please do visit St. Paul's Cathedral. Not only is the architecture staggeringly beautiful but also is the ambiance sublimely peaceful. Imagine a cathedral in your mind and you will find St. Paul's Cathedral to be an exact ditto of your imagination.

A huge cathedral and the right place if silence is what you seek to think, meditate or pray. Do sit in the main cathedral on the left as you enter as the adjoining smaller room is used for carol and other practices.

One of the best architectural building in Kolkata. Silent and serene, feels like a divine place. The place is well maintained outdoors and indoors. It is surrounded by gardens. Photography is not allowed inside.
