St. John In the Wilderness

I went to Dharamshala. It was my first trip to the city I had heard so much about. I had a list of places to visit out of which I could not miss the church of St. John. 

The church was made in 1852 and is known for its gothic structure and Belgian stained-glass windows donated by Lady Elgin. Its churchyard is the final resting place of Lord Elgin, who served as Governor General of the Province of Canada, who oversaw the Creation of Responsible Government in Canada, and later, while in China, ordered the complete destruction of the Old Summer Palace.

As I walked towards the church, the first thing that came to my mind was: Now this is the oldest building I have ever seen! It was beautiful. Though I am not a religious person at all, I can go there almost everyday if I am in the city. 

There were some pretty flowers near the pavement you could not miss and if you walked a little, there was a graveyard too which I could not see much. Speaking of graveyards, I have always wanted to visit the place where Oscar Wilde was buried, Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris..Someday…

  5. Interesting post Rupa. Sounds like a beautiful spot, well looks like a beautiful spot obviously, lol. Beautiful pics. Love your outfit, the mint shorts are amazing and the top gorgeous.
    About the hump day. Hump day is Wednesday and it is the middle of the work week, so when you are past Wednesday, you are over the hump. Hope that makes any sense.
