St. Marks Cathedral was founded in 1808 and was completed in 1812. Bishop of Calcutta consecrated this Cathedral in 1816. This Cathedral is a beautiful colonial structure having a graceful dome over a semicircular chancel that transports the visitor almost immediately into tranquility. Roman archers along the walls are the features of the Cathedral.
It has one of the best-maintained external bells and is also amongst the youngest. This cathedral was modeled along the lines of the 17th -century St Pauls Cathedral. The entrance has elaborate woodwork and ornate carvings coupled with majestically done ceilings and domes. The monument was enlarged in 1901 and rebuilt in 1927. The new structure is known for its stained glass work.
The cathedral is open for all people irrespective of religion or faith. The large grounds of the cathedral with numbers a trees offers a peaceful refugee from the maddening traffic of MG Road. The best time to visit the cathedral is when the choir is practicing or a wedding ceremony is taking place
