A visit to Christ Church Cathedral in the capital conurbation of Nassau is something that anyone with even the least interest in the local history of the isle paradise they are staying at should do. The interesting architecture of this majestic building built in the early to mid 1800s is strikingly gorgeous. Christ Church Cathedral is said to be the "Mother Church" of all of the Anglican churches in the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Isles. In 1670, King Charles II approved the colony (of the Bahamas) to the Lord Proprietors of Carolina. The Proprietors were instructed to build churches and chapels in persistence of the Christian Religion.
