  • About St Pauls:

    Built in the year 1697, St Pauls or St Pauls Cathedral is actually an Anglican cathedral on Ludgate Hill erected by Sir Christopher Wren. However the St Pauls that we get to see today is not the original one. The original building of St Pauls Cathedral was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. When Sir Christopher Wren submitted his plans to rebuild this historical specimen the commissioners of London refused to demolish the old building. However he succeeded in building the domed masterpiece and it took 35 years to complete the construction. After his death Wren was buried in a crypt below the dome alongside Lord Nelson. Inside St Pauls Cathedral you would get to see a few monuments. St Pauls Cathedral has now become a symbol of British resistance against Nazism. The cathedral miraculously survived all war damages because a team of vigilantes who were present inside succeeded in defusing every bomb that fell in the premises. That is why the interior of St Pauls is a little bit militaristic and has got similarity with the Imperial war Museum.

    Inside the Cathedral you would get to see the famous Whispering Gallery. The specialty of this circular gallery is that if you stand on the opposite side you would clearly hear your friends whispering after a few seconds. Even today social events like Royal weddings, state funerals, memorial services and national services of thanksgiving are held here. Besides St Pauls Cathedral houses a large collection of treasures which include effigies that were collected after the Great Fire. The only sad thing is that you would have to pay for visiting St Pauls Cathedral now.
