A must watch place in Shimla. This is an old Christian church built by the British Government in 1857. This is located near the mall road and near the ridge. The location is wonderful and the top view of the city from here is fantastic. The snow covered trees and city is the main attraction of the view point. This is a crowdy place in peak season. There are lots of small shops and outlets from where you can purchase gifts and food.
Christ Church, which is located in the heart of the city, is one of the oldest churches in northern India and boasts stunning Gothic architecture. As we walked through the doors, the first thing that caught our eye was the beautiful stained glass windows that illuminate the church. The intricate design and attention to detail was breathtaking and really added to the overall ambiance of the church. It was a wonderful way to spend an hour and connect with spirituality. One of my friends, who is a history buff, was particularly impressed with the church's rich history. He was thrilled to learn about its evolution over the years and how it has stood the test of time. Overall, the visit to Christ Church was a highlight of our trip to Shimla. Whether you're religious or not, I would highly recommend a visit to this beautiful church. The peaceful atmosphere and stunning architecture is sure to leave a lasting impression.
