Historical Churches - St. Andrews Church, Karachi, Pakistan

St. Andrews Church,  Karachi, Pakistan
St. Andrew’s Church, also known as The Scotch Church, is made in the Gothic style. The foundation stone of the Anglican St. Andrew's Church or Scotch Church was laid in February 1867 by Robert Napier, Commander-in-Chief of the Army at Bombay. The building was completed the following year at a cost of Rs. 56,300. It represents a blend of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Its designer was T.G. Newnham. He and architects like James Stratchan, contributed quite a bit to the city’s structural design, they were inspired by Gothic and Renaissance forms of architecture. The Church has pointed arches and a spire that will remind you of Merewether Tower.
