St Thomas Church, also known as St Merry's Cathedral. Some local people used to call it as "Shada Girja"(means white church) because of the very white color of the church.

This is located just beside the Johnson Road of Lakkhi(Lokkhi or Laxmi) Bazar. Also for your information, its just opposite of the Bahadur Shah Park. So you can visit both the place at the same time.

This church is open for all. I don't know the exact time for the prayers. But you can go there anytime to visit the church. There is no restriction for the visitors. If you are lucky, and present at the prayer time, you can enter inside the church too.

There is a basketball ground in front of the church, where the stuffs and officers of the church used to play at afternoon.
