Christ Church

Found at the Ridge, this church was built sometime between 1846 and 1857and is the oldest church in all of North India. The church was designed by Colonel J.T Boileau and had a clock tower recently added in 1860. A new porch followed in 1873. This church stands to remind one of the developments brought about during the British Raj and is symbolic of the marvelous architectural feats of the era. The place is done up in a neo-Gothic style and one is sure to pay a visit here to spend some moments in prayer.

St. John's Church

Built in 1863, St John’s Church is much like the Roman Catholic Church in England. This monument was constructed during the British rule by Protestant missionaries and is of much religious and historical importance to the hill town of Dalhousie. The architecture is that of a typical British structure as it is made of brick and wood. The church is located in Gandhi Chowk and is a mere 2 kilometres away from the Dalhousie bus stand. Many tourists come to visit this holy shrine all round the year. Next to the church is a library that houses a great number of books and records for visitors to read and go through.

St. Mary's Church

A historical church built in the 19th century by a royal engineer named Col. A.H.B. Hume, this is just near the Tip N Top Pint. This is like a heritage monument of the hill station but all church services were stopped after 1947 given the deteriorating conditions of the building. The charge of administration was taken by the Garhwal Regiment and it was then converted into a museum like we find it now. The museum houses nothing but a pretty good collection of old pictures and details about pre- independence era of this place. You can also enjoy audio- visual representation of the British Era when you come here.

Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges

Known as the Church of Our Lady of Angels, here we see some brilliant masonry and architectural styles. When the church was built, to give it the colour of absolute white marble, fine limestone was mixed with lot of egg whites to make the walls very white. The upper part of the church was made in the Ionic style and the lower part was made in the Doric Style which are both classical styles of architecture. The design of the church was inspired from another chapel of France. The painting that you see on the wall of this church was gifted by Napolean Bonaparte. In front of this church is the statue of Mother Mary with Baby Jesus in her Arms. The church is in a place from where you can see the beach as well as the bay of Bengal. There are also statues of the Joan of Arc and other saints and personalities.

Mount Mary Church

The Mount Mary Basilica is one of the most beautiful churches and is spread in a vast area. Visited during the Christmas Week it was one of the most peaceful sites. No religion is required to feel the positive vibes coming from a holy place. It should be a must visit for it has an aura which cannot be expressed in words.

Shettihalli Church

I wanted to visit Ibrahim Rauza and bada kamaan on that day itself but had no time as their closing time is 6 pm. So I decided to visit Taj Bawadi, the living well of Bijapur. Bawadi means a well to store water. We find great evidences of very well maintained water supply during Adil shahi dynasty. There are a number of bawadis in Bijapur which were once used to supply water to the city. Among all the bawadis , Taj bawadi is the largest in size. It has rooms on both the sides of the tank which indicates it was also used as a luxury commodity to indulge in water sports. Now, this tank is not maintained by the government. City's drainage water is now mixed with the water in the tank. Once a symbol of luxury and prosperity, now this great water tank is in the state of neglect.

San Thome Church

The history of this church is fascinating. It was built in the 16th century by Portuguese explorers over the tomb of St. Thomas, an apostle of Jesus. But in 1893, it was rebuilt by the British with the status of a cathedral. The neo-gothic style of architecture is something not witnessed easily these days, which makes this one a luxury to the catholics in Chennai and all over.
