The good thing in Shimla is that all the main attractions are located almost like in the same campus. This church is really beautiful, peaceful inside. But the temperature is not so low, so when we went in April, to spend a whole day it was a little tiring with sun blazing over head.

An Anglican Church at the central square, it seems strange to see this typical British church ( with all its memorial plaques) at the top of a steep hill in middle of India

This looks like it's just flown in from the UK; it is very British in style and is still a place of worship. I went to the morning service on a Sunday; it was (apparently) in English

Outstanding when seen from the outside, and vibrant from the inside. Our guide told us that the church inspired all sorts of people in Shimla to pray each day - whether Christians or not! The only downside is that it is overlooked by a large, bright red statue of a monkey god on the hill behind.

Perfect place to worship. The open ridge area is a pleasant walk and the shopping place just below it is excellent. You get a feeling of being in europe. Just the place has to be a bit cleaner avoiding all horses which make a mess.

It is one of popular places to visit in Shimla. The church is open only for few hours in the day day. Basically whole ridge in Shimla flows around church only.

5 of 5 stars from me. What a great experience in my life. This is one of the best oldest church in North India. The Silhouette of Christ Church is visible in Shimla for miles. Daily prayer and so many persons are attending the church and we visited the church on Sunday and it was overcrowded on the day.
