Schwartz Church, situated in the proximity of Thanjavur Palace, is one of the attractions of Thanjavur. Schwartz Church was built by Raja Serfoji, the last sovereign ruler of Thanjavur, in the year 1779, to honour the Danish missionary Reverend Frederick Christian Schwartz.
Schwartz Church also has a white marble structure, towards its western part, which was placed here in 1798 to commemorate Schwartz. This marble structure is noted for its intricate carvings depicting the final moments of Schwartz, who is seen surrounded by Raja Serfoji and his ministers.
