st. mary's church

Just 2.5 kilometers from The Raintree Hotels is St. Mary's Church, the oldest Anglican church in India. Built in 1680 by the British East India Company, this venerable house of prayer features an array of things to see. There's the graveyard with the country's oldest British tombstones, dating back to the early 17th century. You'll also want to step up to the altar where you'll encounter a painting that's a depiction of The Last Supper believed to be done by Raphael.
