Saw this church on our way to Sohra from Shillong. The church itself and the surroundings are absolutely breathtaking. Opposite the church, on the other side of the highway is a graveyard on top of hill from which you get panoramic views of the area.

The old church is situated on the road from Sohra main centre to Seven sister w/falls. The white church looks marvelous against the blue background of the sky. You may stop the car and take some nice photos with it.

Such an beautiful location and scenery. Place to watch out for in Cherrapunji. Don't miss out on the spectacular view. Background of the church is too good.

Probably the first church the missionaries opened. Maintained very well. Calm and peaceful in the inside. Do look out for the houses on the street opposite to the church. They maintain some real old welsh styled houses which are more than 100 years old. Take...More

This is very old church built in early days of missionary activity. This was built in 1846 and comes on the way when you are going towards cave.

This church is the only heritage spot among all the attractions in Cherrapunji. One can make a brief halt at the place while entering Cherrapunji. The colonial architecture is well preserved and it is a reminder of the British colonial legacy.
