MORE THAN A HUNDRED YEAR OLD GOTHIC STYLED CHURCH BUILT IN GRANITE BLOCKS AND WOOD. THIS CHURCH WAS BUILD IN MEMORY OF ILIANOR KNIGHT DIED IN 1899 DUE TO MALARIA.BOTH SHE AND HER HUSBAND HENRY WERE MISSIONARIES.SHE LOVED THIS REGION VERY MUCH AND HER LAST DESIRE WAS TO SLEEP FOREVER IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HIGH RANGE VALLEY. AT FIRST THERE WAS A CEMETERY BEHIND THIS CHURCH MEANT FOR BRITISH PLANTERS.WHEN I FIRST VISIT THIS PLACE IN 2002 SEVERAL MARBLE TOMBS FOUND TO DESTROYED IN SEARCH OF JEWELS AND ANTIQUES BURIED ALONG THE CORPSE.
