Lectern - Jhelum by Khalid Mahmood.jpg

St. John's Church Jhelum is a Christian Protestant church located in Jhelum. It was officially built in 1860 to commemorate the British victory of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, in which Jhelum was a noteworthy center of resistance. During the part of the rebellion in Jhelum, about 35 British soldiers died. In veneration of this, a marble lectern was placed, which is still hosted inside the church today, that contains the names of those soldiers. It is said that the church remained closed for forty years, however it has most recently been renovated and re-opened in an almost good condition. (More...)
