Simply extraordinary.....................
Nov. 2019
This church, which melds the imagery of Roman Catholicism, and Buddhism is quite extraordinary and well worth visiting. It illustrates how two very different faiths can live in harmony. Inside what is basically a large prayer hall with a small altar, the wall paintings are fascinating depicting events from the Christian story in a distinctly different way, with references to Llasa and the lotus flower. We were lucky to visit during the school fair for all the local students and it was clear that this church is at the heart of a very vibrant community.

Extraordinary architecture
Nov. 2019
Christianity given a Buddhist twist, apparently due to the instructions to build a church in the local style. As a result you have something of a cross between a church and a temple. The external paintings are particularly fascinating; the life of Christ as seen by someone from a Buddhist background. Well worth half an hour of your time.

Kalimpong is a tiny little place and in that tiny little place one can find Buddhist Monasteries,temples,mosques and churches.The Roman Catholic Church is very peaceful, the splendid architecture and the beautiful paintings inside makes the place very attractive to tourists!!!

The church is a Roman Catholic church and what attracted me was the beautiful painting right beside the entrance. It seemed to be an old church but well maintained one. 👍

Beautiful place
Nov. 2015
Its absolutely dipped in history, this church. with its grand door and painting on the wall to its magnanimous church organ inside, its all just so wonderful. you feel like you're in a different world. The statue of Jesus and Mary so beautiful and the candles. Owing to the stained glass, the whole place has this yellowish tinge, atleast the balcony area, as if you are in a sepia age. Its brilliant.

Nice and beautiful. Quite prominent facade, which can be seen from quite far away tucked into a distant hill.

Beautiful Music
Apr. 2015 • Family
Oldest church in Kalimpong. Can be see in over 100 years old photographs and paintings. looks over the main road, which is the main shopping street. Open all day on Sundays and the service starts around 9:30. They have a beautiful choir and the music is heavenly. Service conducted in English and Nepalese simultaneously. It was a beautiful experience.

Unique Tibetan Touch
Mar. 2015 • Friends
The largest Roman Catholic Church in Kalimpong. It is here where images of Christ and his disciples carved on wood have a distinct Tibetan touch.
Worth a visit because of its uniqueness.

St. Theresa's RC Church
Mar. 2014 • Couples
I don't know whether there is another RC church, but the one we visited is called St. Theresa's. It is definitely worth a half hour. There is, of course, no cost. What is interesting is that, if you were not told that this is a RC church, from the exterior you would think it a Tibetan gumpha. The statues of the saints also look like wooden, Buddhist sculptures. The priests, nuns, and congregants are all welcoming and the exterior paintings of the holy family and the photos of important Catholics, such as Mother Theresa, are worth seeing.
