> St. Mary’s Church: Standing tall amidst the picturesque settings, overlooking the valleys and huge pine trees, the St. Mary’s Church is a popular tourist attraction in Lansdowne. Colonel (then Lieutenant) AHB Hume of Royal Engineers started the construction of this ancient Anglican church during 1895. Post-independence, when many Protestants converted into Catholics, the preaching in this church reduced because of which it was left unattended and started deteriorating. The Garhwal Rifles Regimental Centre later restored this church and converted it into a reading room (for there are few of the Protestant faith left in Lansdowne) and a museum. Today, the church houses relevant pre-independence photographs and audio-visual display of the Regimental history. Apart from this, the church is also worth visiting for its vintage stained windows and magnificent architecture.o Timings: Open All days.Winter: Morning 9 am to 1.00 pmEvenings 3.00 pm to 5.00 pmSummer: Morning 8.30 am to 12.30 pmEvenings 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmo Entry ticket: Not required.
