The church stands in the middle of the town near the river with an extended small garden and is open to all though photography is not allowed yet the Father permitted us to take quick pictures on our visit . All in a pleasant experience walking on the French presence in Bengal .

This is a quiet, neatly kept church in a small, commercial town. The grounds are pleasant and serene, and the interior of the temple is similarly peaceful, reverent, and well-maintained. I do recommend this church for a quick visit if you are going to be in Chandanaggar. Nearby there is also an esplanade with a view of the river. See... More

Its located very near to the Strand (Ranighat). The church stands for over two centuries to mark the beauty of the architecture during the French period — a good place to visit for the historians and tourists alike. Very similar to Bandel church. We were lucky to meet the Father during our visit. No photography allowed inside.

This is a beautiful church given a very special feel by Father Orson Welles, an amazing chap with a real feel for people of all nations and all religions. What a man!

The finest example of colonial French architecture in Bengal. The church used to be the centre point of Chandernagore during the colonial days. It is a big church with beautiful interiors. Worth visiting during Christmas.
