This Anglican church dates to 1852 and was built for British troops stationed here back when Dharamsala was a British garrison town. (FYI: Dharamsala retains a large military base to this day and thus is still a military town in a sense, though I doubt there is a significant number of Anglicans among the officers or enlisted troops these days.)

This hand-cut granite structure was said to be one of the few that survived a major earthquake in 1905.  It features a bell that has survived damage and attempted thievery.
