St. Theresa Catholic Church

St. Theresa Catholic Church in Kalimpong

St Theresa's Church was commissioned by a missionary in 1929 by Swiss Jesuits. The church was built by local craftsmen and resembles a Bhutanese monastery. Influence of the Tibetan architectural design can be seen in the structure of the church. Carved apostles which look like Buddhist monks and the carvings on doors which resemble tashi tagye (the 8 auspicious symbols of the Himalayan Buddhism) show the influence of Tibetan architecture. From the church, one has the chance of viewing the scenic Himalayan ranges.
