Christ Church, which is the second oldest church in North India. It was looking beautiful in the night lights. The church is open to visitors between 10:30 am to 5:30 pm, it was closed by the time we were there, so we decided to go inside the church next day.
A loose walk on the mall towards viceregal lodge at the end of the day was soothing. The most happening area is The Ridge in front of Shimla christ Church, which is shown in most of bollywood movies as a postcard place for Shimla.
More than religious facts this church is famous as a face of Shimla. A beautiful Architecture shows the richness level of British Era in India.
It is located at the Ridge road and is said to be the second oldest church of North India. The stained window glasses represent faith, hope, charity and patience.
The beautiful church is the second largest church in Northern India built in the year 1857 in neo-gothic style to serve the Anglican British Community of the ancient times. It is located on the ridge which is in the heart of Shimla. The church holds the stained glass windows depicting faith, hope, charity, fortitude, patience and humility in it with a splendid appearance. The church is one of the most sacred places in Shimla and thus it attracts numerous tourists. The church is truly an architectural legacy of the British that still outshines in the hill station. So I went inside with my parents to seek blessings from the almighty. I was feeling so calm that for a while I felt like sitting in heaven.
