Introduction to St. George’s Church
Agra is a city of diversity and distinct architectural creations. Monuments, religious sites and cultural heritage sum up this city. Apart from being popular as the city of the Taj, it possesses many other reasons to be visited. St. George’s Church is situated in the cantonment area of Agra city. The church was designed in 1826 by Colonel J. T. Boileau. It is a magnificently beautiful building of ochre stucco of yellow color with white dressings. As the church is constructed in conventional style, it has a very small gateway for entrance. The interior is divided into a central core point and side corridor by six classical columns, carrying a slightly concave or domed roof. Later on, the cathedral in the eastern end has been gothicized with a carved white sandstone screen and the church table was prepared with what Agra is famous for i.e., the marble inlay work.
