Photographer's Note

Located at the Ridge, Simla, The Christ Church is known to be the second oldest church in the Northern India and is the most fascinating building on the Mall road, Simla.

Built in the neo-Gothic style in 1857 to serve the largely Anglican British community in what was formerly called Simla, Christ Church is situated on The Ridge where is stands out as one of the prominent landmarks of Shimla. The silhouette of Christ Church is visible for miles around the vicinity of Shimla city. Christ Church remains one of the enduring legacies of the British Raj.

Christ Church was designed by Colonel J. T. Boileau in 1844, and the church was consecrated after 1857. The clock adorning Christ Church was donated by Colonel Dumbleton in 1860. The porch was added in 1873.

The brass plaques and beautiful stained glass windows are the prime attractions for tourists coming here. Some adjoining attractions also include the Ridge, Statue of Mahatma Gandhi and Skating Rink.
