About C.S.I Christ Church

Carrying the legacy of a century, C.S.I Christ Church is the most revered place of worship in Munnar. It was constructed in 1910 using hewn granites and has various memorial brass plaques. Designed in the Gothic style of architecture, this Christ church has stained glasses depicting Biblical characters. Various third and fourth generation descendants of British planters still visit this attraction in Munnar to trace the history of their ancestors. Today, it is the head of CSI Munnar Pastorate with over a thousand Tamil families and 18 churches. You can capture the serene surroundings of the church and its ancient history with your camera. It makes for a rather captivating click.

Historical Context: The history of CSI Christ Church goes back to the missionaries who arrived here in an early 20th century. Young Ilianor Knight, wife of Henry Knight was the first to be buried here. The church was built in her memory in front of a small hill. Later, it was made an exclusive cemetery for British planters. Before the church was constructed, there was a graveyard at the back of the present structure where many Britishers were laid to rest.The site of the church was consecrated by Rt. Rev. Noel Hodges on April 15th, 1900. The church’s foundation stone was laid in March 1910 by Sir A.K. Muir. It was inaugurated on 16th April 1911 by Rev. W.F.B Hoysted, the then priest.
