Unsung treasures of India

St. Thomas Cathedral in Fort area of Mumbai is part of British history and is a beautiful heritage building. It was built as a church in 1718. Not many know that Churchgate station was named after this church because the road from the station led to this church. It was converted into a Cathedral in 1837. In the bustling commercial district of Fort area it is an oasis of absolute peace. It is built in the gothic & classic style of architecture. The interiors of the cathedral are awesome. There is ample use of painted stained glasses. There are beautiful carved figures & sculptures in marble. This Cathedral was recipient of UNESCO award for heritage buildings. I spent nearly half an hour inside the cathedral today in absolute peace admiring the architectural wonder and being in communion with the Almighty. On your next visit to Fort area please do not forget to visit this place.

Very good church

I love visiting churches as they are clean quiet and refreshing for mind; most importantly no one is asking you for money, donation etc. This church is a beautiful one. There is a cemetery right behind it and a nursery right next to it. If you have time then do visit the cemetery.
