Anderson Church

Anderson Church

John Anderson arrived in Madras as one of the many Scottish missionaries. He started the John Anderson General Assembly School in 1835 (in the present Opthalmic Hospital premises), which later was christened the Madras Christian College and School and later was shifted to George Town. Spurred by the zest for spreading education, he founded the Muslim School for girls in Triplicane. It is indeed ironical that this zestful educationalist is now remembered not for what he actually stood for; rather his name was given to the church situated in George Town where once the handsome buildings of the Madras Christian College stood. The church, attractive with its unique, slim, towering steeple reminds us of the fire that burnt in the heart of the enthusiast.
