St John in the Wilder­ness

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

This Angli­can church is lo­cated at a walk­a­ble dis­tance from both Dharam­sala and McLeodganj, at a place called Forsyth­ganj. The church has a ceme­tery on its premises, and gives an eerie feel­ing, es­pe­cially since it’s sit­u­ated al­most in the mid­dle of nowhere. The beau­ti­ful Neo-Gothic struc­ture is or­na­mented with in­tri­cate Bel­gian-stained glass panes. Built in 1852, the then vice roy of the coun­try, Lord El­gin, was buried here in 1863.
