Constructed in 1857, the Christ Church is now more of a tourist destination in Shimla than a religious center. The shrine which took almost 3 years to build completes the landscape of the hill station. The neo-gothic architecture style employed in the structure attracts many tourists to it. The clock tower, frescos, and stained glass windows give a unique European shade to it. The Lakad Bazar, located close to the Church, is famous for handicrafts made of wood which can be taken home as souvenirs.
