Featured in this video is the St. Paul’s Cathedral, considered to be the first ‘Episcopal Cathedral Church’ in India. It is located to the east of Victoria Memorial in Kolkata, (Calcutta), West Bengal. The construction of this cathedral was patronized by Bishop Wilson.
The foundation stone was laid in 1839 and the work completed in 1847. This church was built in Indo-Gothic pattern and is 247 ft. in length and 81 ft. in width. The tower of this church was rebuilt after a massive earth quake. But again it was adversely affected by another earthquake in 1934.
