Cathedral of The Sacred Heart is situated to the east of Parliament House in New Delhi. The construction of the church took eight years and got completed in the year 1935. Henry Medd, who designed the Cathedral of The Sacred Heart, designed this church also. The shape of Delhi Cathedral Church of the Redemption looks like a birthday cake with a candle placed upon it. The interiors of the church are beautiful and magnificent. Infact, the simple and plain exteriors of the church are a complete contrast to the splendor of its interiors.
Cathedral Church of New Delhi was built in such a manner that even in the extreme summers it remains cool and serene. The Church has beautifully curved high arches and delicate domes, which won the heart of even Lord Irwin, a Viceroy. Lord Irwin gifted an organ and a silver cross to the church, as gesture of thanks when he survived a near fatal accident in 1929. Also known as “Viceroy’s Church”, it is adorned tinted glass windows that lend it a mystical aura. Light streaming through the crescent windows and a group of angels looking down from the curved roof further enhance splendor of the Cathedral of The Sacred Heart.
