Even by Western standards, this is a beautiful church. A wonderful way to get out of the hubbub of Kolkata and experience it's past. Nice how a Christian church blends so nicely into a Hindu/Muslim city. But that is India.

Visited last Christmas and it's a nice place to go. Organised well with lots of police men and women to handle the crowd. The entrance stretch is beautiful with displays from Jesus's life. The candle stand is popular too. View from the back of the church gives you the architectural highs. Would like to visit again.
