St. Paul's Cathedral served as the central church of India, and is a grand and holy structure comparable to some of the renowned Christian cathedrals in Europe, something rare to glimpse in this part of the world.

It's worth a quick stop, especially since it's not far from Victoria Memorial Hall, and it's free to enter. Photos not permitted inside.

Its a huge structure. Very near to Victoria memorial. Can be visited for photography. Vicinity is clean and well maintained. But not found anything interested here. May be a religious place for Christians.

It is an excellent piece of architecture of colonial India.Very well maintained and just not as a religious spot but it is one of the best sightseeing spots in Kolkata.The choirs of this church are worth listening to.

I just this place for the serenity & peacefulness of the church which is pretty accessible from Nandan, Victoria Memorial & Indian Museum. In-fact it is just adjacent to Birla Planetarium. It has a mesmerizing architecture and very calm amid the hustle and bustle of busy city. Even though I am not an Christian by religion but I still recommend spending an hour or two in this church to find inner peace and a rejuvenating experience.
