It is the oldest church in Kolkata. The architectural style of this church is in Indo-Gothic style. It has largest space inside & has well-maintained garden outside. It is the place where mass prayers are held by the Christian community of the city & over the weekend you can see the church crowded with worshipers. A nice & peaceful place... More

classic Cathedral with a very strange prohibition to photograph, in all christian temples and churches around the world it's allowed to take pictures - but not here. it's sad cause here you can find beautiful stained glass windows. if you miss european culture and christian churches - take a look at a few moments. check the schedule: the Cathedral isn't...

It's an Indo - Gothic style Anglican cathedral built in 1847, on Cathedral Road (which is actually an extension of old Chowringhee). The church is located on "Island of Attractions" along with Victoria Memorial, Nandan, Rabindra Sadan and Birla Planetarium. It's the first Episcopal church in Asia, and probably the first Cathedral built in overseas territory of British empire. It... More

It is not especially ornate or welcoming. The grounds are nice and is a nice add on with trip to Victoria Memorial or Birla Planetarium.

Built by Bishop Daniel Wilson, the Cathedral Church of St.Paul's is worthwhile to visit for a glimpse of colonial history. Built in a quasi gothics style with flying buttresses the church is today the Cathedral of the Church of North India's Diocese of Calcutta. The church was a part of the Anglican Church until 1970 when after church union it... More

Rather out of plac in India, but a living reminder of the years of British rule of India. Made to look as though built of white stone, but actualy bick with plaster render. The inside is more interesting than the exterior,

This church certainly has its place in the history of the city of Kolkata. This was the Catholic church authority in India before Church of North India was setup in 1970. The place is full of commemorative and honor plaques. It resembles typical Hindu temples that have its walls adorned with different commemorative plaques. But some of the wall embellishments...
