St. Stephens Church : tourist attraction Ooty

4 years ago

The first Christian Church to be built in the Nilgiri hills is a popular tourist attraction in Ooty. Tourists flock here to witness the beautiful colonial architecture of this ancient Gothic Church. The best thing about this architecture is that it is being completely made of wood. It is been said that this wood used to construct this Church was obtained from the Palace of Tipu Sultan.

The defeat of the Mysore Tiger, made sure the British had complete control over the Nilgiri. After their victory over Tipu Sultan, John Sullivan, requested British Parliament to set up their Military base in here. It is only then British colonists started to set up their base here.
