  • Wow This is the historical church. Its very large and beautiful. Its holly place of Christianity. you can feel peace inside of church. Church is open only on Sunday morning 9 am to 12 pm. Other days you just see from the outside.
  • You'd be able to get the best look of this Cathedral during Christmas. Surely is the most beautifully lit up and decorated place in Allahabad during that time. And the best part, a visit from a person of every faith is welcomed.
  • Modeled after 13th-century Gothic style it is among the Gothic Revival  buildings built by the British during their rural India. British architect Sir William Emerson who also designed the Victoria Memorial Kolkata designed the cathedral in 1871. It was consecrated in 1887 and was completed four years later. The church celebrates its anniversary on All Saints day and is part of the church of North India cathedral is at the centre of a large open space at the crossing of two of the principal roads of Allahabad, Mahatma Gandhi Marg  and Sarojini Naidu Marg The land for the cathedral was granted by Sir William mure the lieutenant governor of the North Western province thereafter Elizabeth Huntly Wemyss, his wife, laid the foundation stone on 10 April 1871. architect Sir William m branham  was employed to designed the building, he had already designed the Krrish 4 market Bombay, and followed this with the Nelson college Allahabad (1872–78), which is now part of the Allahabad University According to The Building News, 25 November 1887, the cathedral was commenced some 15 years previously, and was at first intended for the cathedral of the North Western province  and to have an open verandah and ambulatory all round. It was, however, afterwards decided that the cathedral of the North-Western Provinces should be at Lahore  instead, though it is now thought probable that this will eventually form the cathedral church of a new diocese. Following the extension of the railway network, Allahabad has grown to the extent that it has been found necessary to provide for the addition to the transept  and share  of a much larger congregation that was originally general simplicity of detail was necessitated by the class of workmen obtainable in this part of India at the time of construction. The work was carried out in a cream-coloured stone with fine red sandstone dressings, and the roof is covered with red local tiles The cathedral's nave is about 40 feet wide and 130 feet long, the total length of the church is about 240 feet and the internal width is about 56 feet. It is designed to accommodate 300 to 400 persons. It is a remarkable example of the architecture of colonial India. The glass and marble work of the Cathedral is perfectly preserved even after more than 125 years, The Cathedral also houses many depict the death of different British nationals for a variety of reasons during their rule in India. The church is surrounded by a lush green garden. The pulpit is an exceedingly fine piece of workmanship in albester  by Mr Nicholls of Lambert from Mr Emerson’s designs. Narrow aisles were made in the building thus giving a total internal width of about 56 feet. There are two transepts to the north and south respectively, a channel  with an Ambulatory a central tower at the intersection of the nave and transepts and a west pouch. The Lantern Tower Victoria Tower, is a memorial to Queen Victoria.
