Christ Church

 

Christ Church , located in Hazratganj opposite GPO near Wingfield Park in Lucknow , is a memorial to those who died in the revolt of 1857. Built in 1860, this 19th century church was designed by General Hutchinson and was originally known as the Church of England. Built in the Gothic style with twenty steeples on its top, the church had a cross mounted over the entrance on the north. The interior walls of the church still retain a large number of marble tablets and polished brass plaques erected in the memory of the British army officers, civilians and clergy that died during the conflict. The church was enlarged and improved in 1904. One of the most impressive art pieces that one finds in this church are the stained glass trip-tych murals representing the iconic figures of the Christian faith. The cross on the spire was distorted by an earthquake in 1933. The bell tower has a spire pointing towards the sky with a cross at the pinnacle.
