St John’s Church is the third oldest church inKolkata, erected by East India Company in 1787. Constructed with a combination of brick and stone, the design of the church is based on Neoclassical architectural style. While tall columns support the church from all sides, a stately portico forms the entrance. On the right of the entrance, there is a small, portrait-draped room that used to be the office by Warren Hastings, first British governor-general of India. The graveyard houses two octagonal monuments. The first being the mausoleum of Job Charnock, the disputed founder of Kolkata while the second one is a 1902 Black Hole Memorial, brought to church in 1940.
