The period between1678 and 1680 saw the construction of St Mary's Church, the oldest Anglican church east of Suez and also the oldest British building in India, that later came to be referred to as the 'Westminster Abbey of the East'. The building consists of a protruding nave and two aisles forming the sanctuary. The interior of the church were renovated in 1884 to house the choir. The tombstones in its graveyard mark the oldest demises of Englishmen in India. Robert Clive, a mercenary and later a British officer who established the supremacy of the East India Company in Bengal was married in St Mary's Church - as was the earliest benefactor of the prestigious Yale University in the USA, Governor Elihu Yale.
