"Old City Church"

Also known as Girja Ghar to the locals of Varanasi, St. Thomas Church belongs to the Protestant Church of North India denomination. It does look a bit out-of-place in a city built by Shiva with strong associations to Hinduism. Most first-time travelers to the city stop at this crossing because auto rickshaws and taxis won't take them any further into the labyrinth of the Old City. Painted in hues of yellow, the architecture is built in typical European style with its main spire soaring into the sky with a cross atop it. Though St.Thomas Church pales in comparison to its more visually striking counterpart St. Mary's Cathedral, it does possess an awkward and unassuming charm of its own.
