About St. Mary`s Church in Gulmarg

Every tourist destination has some religious places among the sought-after tourist spots. Religious places are mostly characterized by architectural excellence of our ancestors. This 100 years old church stands sturdy and tall even after so many years.

However, St. Mary’s Church of Gulmarg did receive some renovation and touch-ups in the year 2003. A Christmas mass was also held in this church post a 14 years’ hiatus.

This Victorian architectural beauty is situated near the Golf Course of Gulmarg. To witness the century old architectural wonder, tourists throng this place all year round. Its appearance is similar to one of the small countryside chapels of England. The walls of the Saint Mary`s church are stone grey. The top of the building is a steep green roof that has wooden trimmings. The church looks especially beautiful in the winter season when it is seen in a backdrop of white powdery snow.

Adorning the valley of shepherds of Gulmarg, stands the catholic church of St. Mary`s. At night, it is decorated with colored lightings that makes it look even more pretty. So, if you want to catch the beautiful lightings of the church, drop by this place post sunset.

After military presence was imposed in Gulmarg, the church had stopped functioning altogether. However, there are still a bunch of Christian missionaries and institutions that still stand associated with the St. Mary`s church.

Especially because of its Victorian style of architecture, St. Mary's Church of Gulmarg makes it to the top tourist attractions in Gulmarg. The greenery that surrounds the church with the alpine trees standing guard to it, it makes for a picturesque apot for tourism photography. Not to forget the backdrop of the mighty snow covered mountains. Many old hotels and tiny huts lie in the close vicinity of the Saint Mary`s church. What people like most about this place is that how it takes you back in time when you step inside it.

The visiting hours last from 10:00 am to 05:00 pm.

A lot of photography enthusiasts can be seen hanging around the Saint Mary`s church, Gulmarg to get a memorable shot. If you want a perfect shot with your fellow tourists consisting of your friends and family, this serves as an ideal location. Wild landscape and untouched forests, an ancient church and mountains, this kind of rustic scenery is seldom found in crowded city churches.

Do not expect to be part of any Catholic service here since no such provision is there in St Mary`s church. It is solely a tourist spot now according to the locals unless a priest drops by once in blue moon from the neighboring town. Go there, enjoy the serenity and the architectural magnificence that is soul churning!
