St. John's Church is perhaps the oldest church in the city surely needs a visit. Go there for the wonderful Last Supper painting. The peaceful place right next to Raj Bhabhan will not disappoint you.

The painting of The Last Supper by Zoffany is one of the sites to see in this wonderful church. The cemetery also has The Black Hole of Calcutta. A must visit. Located in BBD Bagh near the Governors House. The nearest metro station is Esplanade.

Church itself isn't super interesting, but you will find the Black Hole of Calcutta in the grounds as well as a memorial to Job Charnock (founder of Calcutta) - very interesting from a historical point of view!
