Kolkata (Calcutta) Sights

St. Paul's Cathedral

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

Completed in 1847, the cathedral now has a steeple modeled after the one at Canterbury; previous steeples were destroyed by earthquakes in 1897 and 1934. Florentine frescoes, the stained-glass western window, and a gold communion plate presented by Queen Victoria are prize possessions. Birds congregate in the interior eaves. The lawns and the Parish Hall are a popular venue for marriages and other functions.
