The attractive structure constructed by British Army in 1869 is situated beside Bishop’ House near St Paul’s High School.Briefing about the programme scheduled for the celebrations, CNI office bearer Col Gyanakan said that the church has been constructed with stones available at Gokak and Rosewood. Glasses that fixed were of Belgium and the wood used were from Dandeli and Alnavar.
