Afghan Church अफगान चर्च

#2024wish The Afghan Church, officially known as the Church of St. John the Evangelist, is a historic Anglican church located in Mumbai, India. It is situated in the Navy Nagar area of Colaba, near the naval base. The church was built in the 19th century to commemorate British and Indian soldiers who lost their lives during the First Afghan War (1838-1842). The architecture of the Afghan Church is notable for its Gothic Revival style, characterized by pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and decorative elements. The interior of the church features beautiful stained glass windows, intricate woodwork, and memorial plaques honoring the soldiers who served in Afghanistan. The church also has a memorial garden dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in the war. Today, the Afghan Church remains an active place of worship for the local Christian community and a significant historical landmark in Mumbai. It attracts visitors interested in its architecture, history, and serene ambiance. #historicallandmarks I wish to visit Germany in 2024
