When there is the question of one God, church and temple are equally ranked in the prayers of the human being. Visiting the quiet and solitude premises of the church has always bestowed me with the gift of bliss and harmony. I used to visit the churches wherever I travel, in the city or out of the town. The walls of the church give me strength and the feeling of compassion towards the society and the mankind. It imparts the message of oneness and service before self. The Christ Church Shimla revived me with same feelings again.
The distinct features of the church are hypnotizing and hold the attraction till the visitor stays there. The profile of the church can be easily seen from miles away in the vicinity of Shimla. It is known as one of the permanent legacies of the British rule. Colonel JT Boileau is the designer of the church who created its design in the year 1844. The massive clock of the church is the gift of Colonal Dumbleton in 1860. The church has witnessed the following political turmoil of the sub continental India. The good condition and well maintenance of the church is the talk of appraisal. The fascinating stain glass windows reveal the heritage of the church and the town. One of them symbolizes the asset and virtue of Hope, Patience, Faith, Charity, Humility and Fortitude.
This is worth seeing and I would like to share these divine features in my blog so that whoever read this blog can come closer to the memorandum of God. I did not know whether I would visit the place again or not and so I was constantly gazing at the features of the church, the idol of Jesus Christ and His deep sacrifice. The prophet of God who sacrificed his life for the well being of the mankind leaves the strong morale of forgive and forget to this world. The day ended with a rejuvenating spirit inside me and I was deeply touched by the Chrict Church Shimla and the message that it imparts to the world of God. It would always remain as a virtue in my heart.
