This is the largest cathedral in Kolkata. Built in 1847 for the ever increasing numbers of European Anglicans in the city at that time, St. Paul’s is a fantastic example of Indo-Gothic architecture; a gothic style that was adapted to suit the climactic conditions of Kolkata. It was originally funded by ten pieces of silver sent by Queen Victoria and has been rebuilt twice, for somewhat more than ten pieces of silver, after suffering extensive earthquake damage. St. Paul’s Cathedral boasts a library of some 8,000 texts. Church services are held there regularly and Christmas service is highly recommended.
