 Medak Church

The Medak church, the single largest diocese in Asia and second largest in the world after the Vatican, is a priceless heritage. The main tower of the cathedral is 173 feet high and the structure is believed to be one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in India.

This famous Cathedral was built with love and crafted to perfection. As the legend goes this church was born out of a famine that struck Medak during world War I. Reverend Charles Walker Posnett was posted as Reverend at Medak during that time. Moved by the plight of the people due to the unprecedented famine that lasted for three years, he proposed to build a great church at Medak in the year 1914. It took ten continuous years to complete this beautiful piece of architecture. With its massive dimensions the church can accommodate as many as 5000 people at a time.

The main tower of the cathedral is 173 feet high and the structure is believed to be one of the finest examples of
Gothic architecture in India.
