St. Stephen's Church

Built in 1830, the St.Stephen’s Church, is one of the oldest churches in Tamil Nadu and still functions as a House of Worship. The wood works and the huge pillars add grandeur to the architecture of this building.

Located near to the city center and maintained under the Diocese of Coimbatore, the church deserves a visit during your trip to Ooty, for its antique atmosphere and a divine tranquility. The intricate works on the walls and the beautiful paintings on the glass windows make this place more charming.

The cemetery behind the church houses the tombs of the military personnel and their families. Details can be inferred from the inscriptions on the tombstones. A place suitable to spend half day while you are in Ooty!.
