Has a picturesque background

The church is nice and is well maintained. The location and the picturesque background makes it much more beautiful. During the visit to Dalhousie I must recommend to everyone. The market nearby is also worthwhile. Near the church you can find Momo and the local food market. The church is also well maintained and is one of the oldest church in the locality. Thank you and wish you a happy Journey

A place worth seeing

200m far from bus stand and quiet. Best time to visit during Sunset and it is near to market. Food junction is near to this Church. In the garden/park, kids play any game and enjoy the moment.

Good place for photography

Located on Gandhi Chowk, this church predates almost all buildings in Dalhousie. The church looks magnificent in the dim ambient night lightings. Must visit for photography.
