This stately example of neo-gothic architecture is in an Indian hill station up in the Himalayas.
Landmark and legacy
Christ Church is one of the oldest churches in India. Built by the British Raj during the prime of the gothic revival in the 1850s, it is situated on a ridge overlooking the town of Shimla. It remains one of the prime landmarks of the town, as well as one of the most enduring legacies of the Raj. It can be seen from miles around, and just a glimpse of this imposing structure reminds you that, while this is India, there was something more going on there for a few centuries.

By KiplingHistorical note – The window in the chancel was apparently designed by Lockwood Kipling, the father of the great writer Rudyard Kipling.
