An Empty Church

Posted by Picasa
Well, I am again late for the July Theme - Empty on the City Daily Photo Portal. But the picture which I had selected for this month's Theme is this - St. Josephs Church at Sadashivgad, Karwar. This Church was built in 1912 with Laterite Stones, Lime and Mud (earth), and later on covered with a thin layer of cement plaster, and is annually whitewashed. The Roof is made of Burnt Clay Tiles supported by wooden rafters, that have stood the test of time. Long Steel Rods suspend the Ceiling Fans, and the Architecture seems to be influenced by the Portuguese Style. The Front Elevation of the Church was posted by me earlier here.

It looks much more impressive inside than outside! And with plastic chairs at the sides, it's nice to know that it gets full during services.
