Shimla Christ Church is the oldest surviving church in Northern India. It stands right on the Ridge. Unfortunately, we did not get to go in. It was closed the time we went up the Ridge.

The Christ church is one of the old monuments in Shimla. The church was beautiful from outside, could not see it from inside as it was shut on all 3 days when i visited the ridge. You can click pics standing outside the church.

Right on the Ridge stands the Shimla Christ Church. It’s building itself says about its history. Generally it opens on every Sunday for public.

Beautiful place, most tourists / travellers can be seen here. View from the place is fabulous. Area is very clean and well maintained by HP government. The Church is in the heart of the city, surrounded by old but beautiful buildings
