Christ Church in Mussoorie

The Christ Church is a reminiscent of the British Era in India; it gives a peek into the life of Jesus Christ and the times when the British has enslaved India. The massive structure of the Christ Church was established by private donations for the use of British Residents. The Christ Church was declared to be a part of the Church of North India on 29th November 1970.

The Christ Church has a very captivating and eye-catching architecture. You will find the brilliant gothic styled architecture with stained glass windows that display the happenings in the life of Jesus Christ. When taking a look at the high altar, you will see it displaying the sufferings in the life of Jesus Christ. The British gave India a gift by designing the windows in a pre-Raphaelite style. The windows and the walls of the church are quiet striking and very intriguing. The presence of a century-old William Hill organ makes the church have more significance in history as it represents the times bygone.

The Christ Church was once visited by the Princess of Wales, who was later the Queen Mary of England. On her visit to Mussoorie in 1906, she visited the Church and planted a Deodar tree in its courtyard. The Deodar tree stands strong in the courtyard of the church till date.
