Church of St John is a lovely church in McLeodganj. The architecture is Gothic style and there are coloured stain glasses in the huge windows. The church is quite small but very peaceful and surrounded by abundant natural beauty. Must visit place.

This place is very beautiful. An awesome place to give a pause in between your trip. Me and my hubby didn’t feel like leaving the place and wished the time had just stopped. Church looks beautiful with an ancient look. Worth a visit.

This place is worth a visit while going to or coming from Mcleodganj. This ancient church is surrounded by tall very old trees. At the backside is a graveyard, a bit spooky feeling in the evening.

Nothing much to do or see here. Place is good for taking a few pictures and stopping for 10-15 minutes. There are a few food carts across the road where you can get some decent Maggi and Momos. Stop here for a bit if you...More
