Colonial era church with magnificent & beautiful architecture, Located near Victoria Memorial. It is perhaps one of the biggest churches I have ever seen.

“Must see”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

It is a "must see"for several reasons. It is the first Episcopal church in the whole of india,Pakistan, sri lanka,Bangladesh and Burma. It was built in the model of a cathedral in England and after the spire and other parts were destroyed by earthquakes it was rebuilt in the Canterbury model. It is an island of tranquility amidst the madness of Kolkata. On the downside it has become very touristy and hardly a place of worship. I have known a house of God being closed for three hours in the afternoon. If you are on park street you can take a cab or walk .

“India's St. Paul's”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Eventhough this is not THE St. Paul's Cathedral renowned across the world, the cathedral in Kolkata is still worth a visit. The white facade of the building in the heart of the city, surrounded by beautiful tended gardens is still lovely to visit after nearly two hundred years of it's original build. The inside of the cathedral is just as amazing, if not more and lovely to see the heritage of this important part of Anglo-Indian history being kept alive for others to appreciate and marvel.

“Not much of a cathedral”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

A quiet and peaceful place. Euphemistic for empty and barren especially compared to the Victoria memorial across the road. The church itself is not very big. The architecture is modelled on the cathedral of Canterbury and currently the place houses the Kolkata diocese.
