Sight Seen : Darjeeling With Kalimpong Tour - St.Theresa Catholic Church

Kalimpong - St.Theresa Catholic Church

Built by local craftsmen the church resembles a Bhutanese Gompa(monastery) and it is built in Tibetan architectural design. While the walls are enriched with paintings and inscriptions from the Bible the doors of the church have carvings which resemble tashi tagye (the 8 auspicious symbols of the Himalayan Buddhism).

One can also view scenic Himalayan ranges from the church.
