This historic church is a popular tourist attraction which is known for its architectural beauty. This iconic religious structure also serves as a spiritual oasis to those of the Anglican faith.
Although the Christ Church was built in 1905, the Church Committee has a long illustrious history dating back to 1861. Built on land granted by King Rama V with a seating capacity of over 500, the Christ Church has served as a symbol of the Christian spirituality in Bangkok for over a hundred years, and has earned a reputation of being a reputed and magnificent church. The architectural beauty, which is a blend of both gothic and colonial styles, is one of the features of this church which inspires many of the visitors of the church.

The Christ Church is also home to the only pipe organ in Thailand, which tends to be another feature which attracts people to visit this spiritual oasis.
