St. Mary's Church Overview

Ranked 7 of 11 sightseeing in Lansdowne

St. Mary’s Church was constructed by Col. A.H.B Hume of the Royal Engineers in the year 1895. This church is located near the Tip-In-Top Point. In 1947, the church was not used any longer as it started to deteriorate. The Garhwal Rifles Regimental Centre converted it into a small museum, housing interesting pictures of the pre-independence era. This museum also houses the audio visual displays of the history of the regiment.

Serene place

The best part about this Church is not the Church itself but the viewpoint on the right side of the road. The Church is beautiful with its Victorian style architecture. They have a 15 min movie on Garhwal Rifles in the Church. You cannot visit the Church if the movie is playing.

Quaint little Church with intricate windows

Do watch the 15 min movie here on Garhwal rifles. The Church is purely victorian style with glass stained windows. It gives you a feel of being in that era. The viewpoint besides the Church is heavenly, must visit.

Ideal for Christmas visit

This Church gets properly decked up with all glamour and zeal during Christmas. The place is serene and the greenery is appealing to the eyes. Visit this place to enjoy the silence and peace here.

I just wanted to click it and the photograph came out so good. I am happy that we went to this church on the day of Christmas.
