Built in 1830, 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 close to the city centre and maintained by the Diocese of Coimbatore, the church deserves a visit during your trip to Ooty, especially for its antique atmosphere and a divine tranquillity. 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. This is definitely a place suitable to spend half a day while you are in Ooty!
