St. John's Church is a beautiful church in northern India which is dedicated to John the Baptist. This church was built in 1852 and is located 8 km from Dharamshala – once the second winter capital of British India and now the headquarters of Buddhist Guru Dalai Lama. This church was built in amazing neo-Gothic architecture and has lovely Belgian stained - glass windows.
St. John's Church is situated between the long trees of 'Deodar' that’s why it is famous as “St. John in the Wilderness”. The structure of the Church is unique and powerful that why it survived in 1905 earthquake. Unfortunately, this Church lost the bell tower and spire which was rebuilt in 1915. This Earthquake killed 19,800 peoples and destroyed most of building in Kangra and Dharamshala.
This place is also the last resting place of Lord Ergin who was the governor of India in 1861 during the British Raj. The scenic deodar tree, serene environment and White Mountains here are reason enough to leave unforgettable memories in the minds of tourists. St. John's Church is one of the most visited churches in this region and it’s well connected with road and Airport.
