Location: Agra (Uttar Pradesh)
Established In: 1826
Designed By: Colonel J.T. Boileau
Feature: Typical Cantonment Church

The cantonment area in Agra is spaciously laid out on the usual rid-pattern. The St. George's Church located in this area is a typical Cantonment Church. Designed by Colonel J. T. Boileau in 1826, it is a beautiful building of yellow ochre stucco with white dressings.

The church is conventional and restrained, the entrance being approached through a small vestibule with inches. The interior is divided into a central nave and side aisles by six Ionic columns carrying a slightly vaulted roof. The chancel at the east end has been gothicised at a later date with a carved white sandstone screen and the altar was enriched with the marble inlay work, for which Agra is famous.
