St. John’s Church

This old church, which still holds services to this day, was established in 1844 and stands tucked away amongst the tall Deodar trees on the northern end of the town. A plaque was added inside the church as a memorial for the people who lost their lives on 18th September 1880, when a deadly landslide swept down the Alma Dhar hill and created the present day ‘Flats’, now a sports and recreation ground. Another plaque commemorates those who lost their lives during WWI.
