Calm, peaceful place. It was an awasome experience to visit the very old church. Some of the staff's behaviour was very rude, they should give importance in the staffs service. But it is very peaceful place, where you can find peace of your soul. Must visit this place✌💕💓. Loved it💕💕.
The architectural style of the Church is mesmerizing. The spire holds a giant clock, which is wound every day. Large beautiful windows allow the sunlight to filter through the coloured glass. Sitting a while inside the Church brings absolute peace in mind. .😍
