  • It is one of the oldest church in Delhi. Located near Kashmere gate metro station it is accessible from everywhere in Delhi. Very calming and silent place. Only a guard is there on the main gate and inside no one was there. The interiors of the church is beautiful and architecture is Colonial style. Also, there is a graveyard which houses tombs of several colonels. You can sit, pray and meditate in the garden. Only sad part is that the church is not in very good condition. Its restoration work is going on but the management doesn't have enough funds. It is a part of our rich history so hope it gets back to its original glory!
