One of the most famous churches of Lucknow, the St. Joseph’s Cathedral stands in Hazratganj, amidst all the bustle of the city’s main area. The church complex also houses a school that is very popular amongst the educational institutions of Lucknow. Standing on the entrance of this holy place, is a magnificent statue of Jesus, with his arms spread wide, beckoning you to enter the inner sanctum of the building. Sprawling steps lead you to the door and the interiors have an aura of divine peace. Visited by both the followers and visitors alike, the splendor of this magnificent church inspires and soothes everyone.
Built in the 19th century by Rev. Fr. William Gleeson, an Irish priest who came to Hazratganj from the town of Golaganj, the church was blessed by Bishop Anastasius Hartmann in the year 1862. A truly serene and divine place, the church evokes faith in the visitors. Illuminated on special occasions the building is an enchanting sight for all.
