The magnificent Christ Church is the most popular landmark of Shimla that stands as a testament to the region’s colonial past. Built by the British in 1857, it is one of north India's oldest churches that attracts tourists with its brilliant Neo-Gothic style of architecture. The church has borne witness to the region’s rich history and culture, and pews that were marked out for the viceroy, the commander-in-chief and the lieutenant-governor of Punjab still remain intact. It also houses memorial tablets made of brass that honour those who built the British empire in India. The church is known for its stained glass windows that represent faith, hope, charity, fortitude, patience and humanity. The St Michael’s Cathedral is a Catholic house of worship that is run by the Simla-Chandigarh Archdiocese. Visitors can head there for daily and weekly mass. The timings tend to vary in summers and winters.
