Shimla’s Christ Church is north India’s second-largest church. Its beautiful structure still attracts people. 

Bells used to toll in this church till 1982, after which they fell into disrepair. Although there are many bells in the church, one special bell had not tolled for several years and was causing a lot of problems. Hammers from England were procured and installed in the bell, after which it began chiming. 

Completed in 1857, this church made in the neo-Gothic style was built for members of the Anglican British community. This church has five large windows, which are made of expensive glass. It was designed by Colonel J T Boileau in 1844.
