St.John's Church at Vellore Fort

St.John's church at Vellore Fort was built in 1846 by the British for the officers of the East India Company military station. Major C G Ottley , the Fort adjutant of Vellore fort , designed and built the church with a capacity to seat 280 people.


  1. Looks beautiful even after so many years! Must visit this fort soon.

  2. Today in the United States, massive churches are being built that look like oversize farming equipment sheds. I like a church that takes your breath away when you look at it. Holy things do that to you. Big steel girded and tin roofed and sided buildings do not do that.

  3. Beautiful architecture and i simply liked the facade! Love to visit it sometime...
