Back of the Blog - William Arthur Memorial Church in Gubbi

Back of the blog. Here we will share tit-bits and snippets on India Travel which may be useful for a traveller in India. It may be some new information about the place, a new cuisine one can explore, a bit of history, a funny anecdote or a good travel book. Anything connected to Travel in India. 
Many a time, we come across little gems whenever we go on a road trip. This is one of the reason why travel is so exciting. More so when you travel in India!!

During our many trips to interiors of Karnataka, especially Malnad ( For details on exploring Malnad region, please click here) region, we have to cross a small town named Gubbi after Tumkur in South India. As we entered Gubbi Town - 90 KMs from Bangalore - we were surprised to see a cute little church built in Gothic style on the highway. It is just out of the blue. The architecture and colours have blended so nicely to make it an eye-catching building.

I am not sure who was responsible to build this church though the plaque says that it was built in the year 1904. If you know more about this church, please do share with us.

Next time when you are driving to Shimoga or Chikmagalur via Tumkur, just stop over for few minutes to look at this nice little church.
