$ 93$ 155

Situated in South Bombay, the Church of St Andrew and St Columba is sometimes called the Scots Kirk. Construction began in 1816 and was completed in 1819. The spire was added four years later in 1823. However, it was struck by lightning in 1826 and had to be replaced.

The funds to build this church were provided by the British East India Company. The organ, though, was bought by public subscription at a cost of Rs 4,800. There is a marble table erected in the church to commemorate Reverend Father Macpherson, who died in 1881.

The Great Western Hotel is a palatial building that was once the residence of the Governor of Bombay. It also served as the Admiralty house, residence of the Commander in Chief of the Indian Fleet, from 1770 to 1795. Around 1800, the government purchased the building and transformed it into the Recorders Court House until 1878. The property was then purchased by Rustomjee Jeejeebhoy and sold to the Sassoon Family.

In 1883, the building once again exchanged hands and was converted into a hotel known as the Great Western Hotel. A 5-storeyed wing was added in the early 1890s. It was designed by renowned architect S M N Chandabhoy. Another 3-storeyed building was added in the later 1890s. The hotel has since closed down and the rooms have been divided and given out on rent.
