Medak Church

In the Medak town, is the famous Cathedral that was built with love and crafted to utmost perfection. According to the legend, this church was the baby of a famine that struck the district during First World War. Charles Walker was posted as the Reverend at Medak at that time. Walker who was moved by the predicament of the people because of the unprecedented famine which lasted for three years, proposed the construction of a great church at Medak district in the year 1914. This beautiful piece of excellence took ten continuous years to take shape. The church has massive dimensions and is very spacious. It can accommodate as many as 5000 people.

The huge widows adorning the high walls of the church are done in a remarkable stained glass. They provide a spectacular view during daytime. No artificial light can re-create this magical scene. This is also the most fascinating feature that attracts scores of people to the church. For people who cannot read, the church serves as a picture book on the holy Bible.

The window to the north of the church offers a canopy to the altar. This view is very fascinating. The scene reprises the assertion of Jesus towering above the altar, shrinking everything as Jesus ascends to heaven. The tiles of the historic church were imported from Italy and the roof has been cast to guarantee best acoustics. With its sheer size and beauty, this century-old Medak church stands out as one of the finest demonstrations of Gothic architecture in the country
