This cathedral is also called the Pathar Girija and is visually stunning. Built in 1887, it is an Anglican Cathedral and is well maintained to the day

My hotel was just down the block from the cathedral so I walked over in the morning. I circumnavigated the grounds which lay behind a fence. When I got to the gate at the north side of the circle the Reverend Daud, Presbyter in Charge was arriving. He invited me in and showed me around. This is the largest cathedral in India. Reverend Daud works hard to preserve it with a limited budget. The cathedral is no longer Anglican but Church of North India. It was fascinating to hear about building and maintaing a Christian congregation in a place where Christianity is quite the minority. The city is called Allahabad and I actually visited during the great Hindu festival Maha Koumbe when millions of Hindus descend on Allahabad to bathe in the Ganges River. Reverend Daud showed me where he builds the manger scene at Christmas (the animals are a big hit with Hindus who visit the cathedral at Christmas to see it) And in the spirit of ecumenism (let's get some paganism in here too) there was a big Santa Claus banner still hanging. The architecture is of the finest quality and that alone is worth a visit but to hear the story of pastoring way beyond the realm of Christendom was the most fascinating. I don't know Reverend Daud's schedule but I ran into him about 9:30 AM at the North Gate. Ask the guard. Maybe he can find the Reverend for you.

Architecturally this cathedral is typical of its type but it is impressive for India as it was built during the British Raj era and is a surprising find in a town like Allahabad. It is a peaceful place and has some historically interesting memorial plaques on the walls inside.

Stunning building, and I never imagined there could be anything as large as this in what appears to be a smallish town. Must visit... if you can find someone who opens the doors for you then that's great, otherwise just stroll around the grounds and try to peek in!

a land mark of British empire, Allahabad All Saints Cathedral is old very beautifully made Church. It looks alive in night with yellow lights falling on the grayish brown rocks and tainted glasses.
