4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
Built in the 19th century to serve the area's British community, Shimla Christ Church features an unmistakable neo-Gothic style, with stained glass windows and one of the oldest pipe organs on the Indian subcontinent. The church's white facade stands out brightly in the sunlight and lights up during the night, so there's no chance you'll miss it while touring the area.

  • Speaking Respectfully, Not a Christ Follower and don't know much about, but I loved the idol, architecture, and the Silent environment in Church. This is said to be 2nd oldest Church. Enjoyed Under HIS Presence!!!
  • A time machine to travel through british india. History well preserved in this church. And no speaker comes close to the church organ. It used big pipes for sound output, brings reverence on its own.
  • Beautiful winter destination. The church brings up one end of the famous Mall stretch - crowded with tourist-pleasing shops and eateries. The stained-glass windows in the church are a sight unto themselves.
  • Second oldest church in north India. A beautiful architectural master piece.
  • Situated at a beautiful place and building is well preserved.
