Photographer's Note

The Anglican Medak Cathedral, which belongs to the single largest diocese in Asia, is a priceless heritage of Andhra Pradesh, India. It was built by the British Wesleyan Methodists and is now under the Church of South India - Diocese of Medak.
This church was built during a famine that struck Medak during World War I. Reverend Charles Walker Posnett was posted as Reverend in Medak during that time. Moved by the plight of the people due to the unprecedented famine that lasted for three years, he proposed to build a great church at Medak in the year 1914. It took ten continuous years to complete this monumental piece of architecture. With its massive dimensions, 100 ft width and 200 ft. length, the church can accommodate as many as 5000 people at a time.
