St. Stephen's Church, Ooty
(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the tranquility and a piece of mind just above downtown Ooty at St. Stephen's Church, a cream-colored cardboard caste-like Anglican colonial establishment. Built in 1829 exclusively for the British, the church features huge wooden beams hauled from a defeated sultan’s palace 120 km (74.5 mi) away. Slim pointed arch windows with stained glass have images of Virgin Mary, Last Supper, crucifixion and angels. The church has no traditional bell but uses four hammers instead moved by wires pulled from the floor. An overgrown cemetery behind the church features graves of many scions of British families, soldiers, administrators and traders. Church doors open on Sundays and during holidays alone. Make St. Stephen's Church part of your personalized Ooty itinerary using our Ooty vacation generator.
