BIJNOR: Christmas celebrations are in full swing at Raja ka Tajpur in Bijnor, as the church at Nehtor locality is popularly known.
Like Taj Mahal of Agra, this church also signifies the epitome of love and devotion," said Amit Samuel, a local.
Perhaps, it is the only church in the entire country which was erected by a Hindu raja for his wife.
The zamindar later converted to Christianity and came to be known as Raja Francis Xavier Singh Rikh.
The church was built on a spread of 12 bighas in 1913.
