DURING THIS VISIT, WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT SOME PLACES IN CHENNAI, WHERE WE HAVE NEVER BEEN BEFORE. FINDING THE WAY TO REACH THE CHURCH ITSELF WAS A NICE EXPERIENCE. WE WERE ALSO CURIOUS ABOUT EXPLORING NEW PLACES OTHER THAN REGULAR PLACES.

ACTUALLY WE THREE HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A CHURCH BEFORE. SO WHEN WE HAD ENTERED THE CHURCH, WE FELT AND EXPERIENCED SOMETHING DIFFERENT. A WHOLE NEW WORLD.

THE HUGE DOME AND THE FLUTED PILLARS WITH CORINTHIAN CAPITAL SUPPORTING THE DOME, THE STAINED GLASS AND CARVING DETAILS WAS INTERESTING. IT IS A LIVE STUDY OF GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE.
