Sardhana Church

19 km north-west of Meerut lies the fascinating town of Sardhana with a romantic and historically significant past. This Roman Catholic Church exhibits the subtle mixture of architectural styles. Two huge lakes near the church are the result of the mud that was removed to supply the building material for the church. Facing the west this church has it entrance from the north side. 18 Doric pillars line the verandah. At the back rise two lofty spires, and the stipple on the left two large bells. The octagonal lantern above the central dome is made up of finely chiseled and perforated slates and capped with black and white marble. This reflects an obvious Muslim architectural influence. On the top of the three domes and two spires there are heavily gilded metal balls, surmounted with metal crosses. The roof of the church is at different level given it a beauty all its own. The main alter is of white marble brought from Jaipur. It is tastefully inlaid with a floral design of semiprecious stones. The alter steps and sanctuary flow is of black and white marble. Above the niche is the statue of Mother Marry.
