About Afghan Church

Also known as the St John's Church, Afghan Church is located at Colaba in Mumbai. Established in 1847 AD, the church was later consecrated as a memorial to those who fell in the First Afghan War of 1843 and disastrous 1842 retreat from Kabul. The church is a magnificent piece of architecture with a varnished teak wood roof with hammer beam style ribbing, the flooring of the church made of encaustic tiles with coloured clay shipped from England. From the inside, the church is known for its vast Gothic arches and beautiful stained glass windows. The usually secluded spot has boards providing information about the church and the nearby cemetery. Added advantage, it allows you a few quiet moments in the city that never sleeps.
