Medak Church

In the Medak town is the famous Cathedral 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. This church 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 remarkable stained glass work on the huge  windows of the church offers a spectacular view during the day time, which cannot be replicated by artificial lighting. This is the most fascinating feature of the church; it serves as a picture book on the Bible to those who cannot read. Each window is made; up of small bits of painted glass, which has been glued into a single piece and then delicately set into the stone windows. The window to the north which offers a canopy to the alter is very fascinating., It depicts  the scene of assertion of Jesus towering above the altar, dwarfing everything as Jesus ascends to heaven. The other two windows decorating the East and West facades depict the scene of the birth of Jesus and his crucifixion. The bells  cast especially for the church can be heard from far off. The pinnacle of the church stands at 173 ft. The tiles of the church were imported from Italy and the roof has been cast to ensure best acoustics. With its immensity and beauty,  this century old church stands out as one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in India.
