Here are some pictures of St. Mary’s Church taken by my brother when he visited Lansdowne recently as part of his college trip. Thank you Akhil for sharing the pictures. GOD Bless.
About the Church: Construction of this Protestant (I am sure Anglican) Church began in 1895 by Lieutenant Hume of Royal Engineers. It was completed in 1896. The church fell into disuse after 1947. The building has now been restored by Garhwal Rifle Regiment.
