Opened to the public in 1818, Presbyterian Church of the Church of Scotland occupies the site of the old Mayor’s Court and the Supreme Court of Calcutta (1726-92). It was built under supervision of Maria Imhoff, wife of Marquess of Hestings. The church stands symmetrically on die axis of die Old Court House Street and acts as focus in streetscape. The church stands white and dignified and its north and south sides are portions with Doric Pillars and triglyph friezes. Although these are similar to St. John’s Church, the steeple is a more successful adaption of Gibb’s original prototype.
