St Andrews Church In Bangalore – Old Postcard 1906

This is an old 1906 postcard of the St Andrew’s Church in Bangalore or Bengaluru. Initially named as St Andrew’s Kirk Church and is more than 150 years old (built in 1866). Established in Cubbon road and was once part of the Church of Scotland.  It was set up for the Scottish civil and military personnel and their families during the British era of the Madras Presidency.

See my post- Cameron Highlanders Regiment Bangalore-Old Postcard 1911.

At one time the tower was the tallest in Bengaluru that became a useful observatory for many people. Many architects, historians, and lovers of British era history make a visit to this beautiful gothic structure. Today the Church services are in Kannada and English. Also visible is a horsecart and driver probably waiting patiently for the passenger who came for the sunday worship.
