This is a beautiful church located in Colaba, at the base of Navy Nagar. It was decorated so grandly as I was there about a week before Christmas.

Afghan Church located almost at the very tip of Colaba, is a beautiful architectural gem. The stained glass windows are well preserved and detailed. The roof is akin to the churches in England. Only drawback would be that the church does not have predictable visiting...More

Very interesting history. I liked the inside. Better maintained than other reviewers have indicated. We gave the groundsman a tip for letting us inside. Highly recommended. You drive the India naval grounds to get the church.

On a visit to Colaba, I was intrigued by this name "Afghan Church". Built to commemorate those who fought the Afghan war of 1842, this church is an architectural and historic monument. While Gateway of India is visited quiet commonly, this church is slightly off...More
