The Afghan Church in Mumbai, India was built to commemorate the maryrs of the First Afghan War (1835-1842). It is in fact a Presbyterian Church with only about 30 members left - mostly soldiers. It's in the Neo-Gothic style and marked by a tall spire that was meant to be spotted from the harbour. It has wonderful stained glass windows and geometric floor tiles that were imported from England..
