  • Not much to see here but if wilderness and history are your calling, then go and see this church nestled in the lap of nature. Surrounded by tall and very tall cedar trees and close to an Eco garden.....  more

  • This church is one of the famous tourist's attractions in Dalhousie which is just opposite Gandhi chowk. The church was not opened due to heavy snowfall so we managed to get in from the back door. As it was fully occupied by snow it was looking even more beautiful. Definitely, this church is a must-visit place.
  • Proper structure of the chapel was built in 1863 before which it was a wooden structure. The idea to build a stone structure for the chapel took place in 1863 when Rev. John H. Pratt arrived at Dalhousie. He inspired the tourist Christian Protestant missionaries to build a permanent church building at this place. The architecture of the church is similar to the Roman Catholic's Church of England; the only difference is that the St. John's Church belongs to the Protestants community.
