St. John's Church, Dalhousie Overview

Built in 1863, St John's Church is the oldest church in Dalhousie and assumes great historical significance apart from being a sentinel of Protestant belief in the region. Located in Gandhi Chowk, it tends to be a favourite amongst photographers because of the steady mix of beauty and history. A library neighbours the church, where one can find a lot of book about the past and the present of the town. Sunday Service performed at the St John's Church is attended by the locals and tourists alike.

Embodying the Victorian era, the St John's Church in Dalhousie is a reminder of the British regime in the region. The interior of the church is adorned with stunning glass paintings of St John the Baptist along with St Peter.

History

A wooden church existed before 1863, at the exact spot where St. John's Church stands today. The present structure was constructed after the arrival of Rev. John H. Pratt in Dalhousie, who encouraged the people, especially protestant missionaries, to construct a structure that could withstand weather complications. The architecture of the church that we see today is in the same line with the Roman Catholic Churches of England and is made out of stones, with wooden beams in the inside. 

How to Reach

The church is located 2 km from Dalhousie’s main bus stop. Take a walk down the hilly road if you have time at your disposal, otherwise, take a cab.
