The religious center is one of the oldest buildings in Nainital. Captain Young constructed the structure with the approval of Bishop Daniel Wilson and was inaugurated in April 1848. Built-in the Gothic style of architecture, the shrine stands as a reminder of the colonial past of the land. There is a small memorial in the church for those killed in the landslip of 1880. The Anglican church stands at the top of a small hill which is filled with pine and deodar trees. The serene environment creates a calmness that attracts those who are tired of the hustle and bustle of daily life.
