Church in Varanasi

St. Mary's Church - Varanasi

Ghats in Varanasi

Situated in the cantonment area of Benaras the St. Mary's Church has a low tower, spire and projecting portico. Instead of windows the church has louvered doors to the sides and hooded ventilation slots beneath the cornice. The flank elevations are divided by pilasters into seven bays, the two outer bays having blind door cases enriched with blocked surrounds and keystones in the manner of Gibbs. The five central bays are played down, three with simple louvered doors beneath plain cornices alternating with two bays each with white plaster niches. Above each doorway is a rectangular fanlight protected from the glare of the sun by a plain timber canopy-a simple device, which has a major architectural impact. The Churchyard with its serene atmosphere has many tombs and memorials.
