__Afghan Church__

Afghan Church located in Navy Nagar of Mumbai was built by the British to commemorate the dead of the First Afghan War and the disastrous 1842 retreat from Kabul. 

The imposing edifice was constructed using locally available buff- coloured basalt and limestone. Inside it is known for its wide gothic arches and beautiful stained glass windows. The chapel has a nave and aisle with a chancel 50 ft (15 m) in length and 27 ft (7 m) in width. Butterfield's tiles used for the geometric floor pattern were imported from England.The tower and spire are 198 ft (60 m) high. 

Got a chance to revisit this church again with a Professor on a rainy day.
