Notes on the Geography of Northern India: New Delhi: Photo 16

world pictures Northern India: New Delhi

The plan, cruciform with two vestries projecting from the east end, was by Henry Medd, a protege of Lutyens. The church is said to strongly resemble Palladio's Church of Il Redentore in Venice, but it also resembles the Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church, which Lutyens had designed two decades earlier.

The budget was too tight to face the building with stone. Medd went on to become chief architect to the government of India during the war, but by then it was too late for grand monuments even in brick.
