Antiques & Monuments

St. John’s Church is a treasure trove of historical artefacts.  The exquisite Communion Plate, adorned with the East India Company’s coat of arms, was acquired in 1842. Regimental colours, once displayed, belonged to the 10th Madras Native Infantry, later moved to a Gurkha regiment in Hong Kong. Records from 1813, showcasing copperplate writing, detail intriguing stories of marriages requiring army permissions, baptisms of Indians, and tragic incidents like snake bites and tiger attacks.
