St Stephen's Church, Ooty

When the Brits settled into Ooty, they established all the fine trappings of home. What's a community without an imposing church and creepy graveyard out back? The foundation was laid in 1829 with opening communion coinciding with Easter in 1831.

The big boy, at the rise of a hill.

Yep, all the signs of a classic church. Hardwood pews, stained glass windows.

Head behind the church and the hill continues, now the moody graveyard. Exhibit A.

Another look at the well worn graves.
