1779 AD

The Schwartz Church in Thanjavur a.k.a Tanjore, was built in the 18th century by the spanish missionary Rev. F.C.Schwartz (1779 AD, to be more specific). Richie, family friend and our tour guide whenever we're in Trichy (he's from tanjore and a history buff) introduced us to this church, on our way to the Tanjore temples. A beautiful reminder of a colonial past, your visit to Tanjore is incomplete without this monument. Also remembering our dear Susheela Aunty (pictured here), who passed away earlier this year.
