  • This church has a wealth of wall plaques which reflect the lives of the many British who lived in Shimla. It is also possessed of a beautiful organ - if you are lucky enough to have someone paying this instrument during your visit you will be transported. Moreover The Ridge, one of the most crowded and attracted place in shimla. Here you can roam around or sit for n numbers of hours easily and enjoy the weather and beauty of shimla. It's near to mall road and easily accessible. Activities likehorse riding etc are there to enjoy. Few eatables stall are der too.
  • Awesome place really the blessed place. Very nicely maintained by hp govt. salute to the British who have explored such places in India. God bless all.
  • Beautiful architecture of the Simla Church. No one will miss, if some one goes to simla mall. In the night it is more wonderful.
  • The iconic Church of shimla... it's almost synonymous to the Hill station. Situated on ridge maidan.. it's one of the places that u can't miss while visiting shimla
  • Beautiful location. A small church on the upper level of Mall road, Shimla. The view is fabulous.
