Photo: Exterior First Church Otago Dunedin South Island New Zealand

This is the exterior of the First Church of Otago, which was built in 1873 in Dunedin in Otago on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is located at 415 Moray Place in the heart of the city and is a popular tourist spot.

The exterior of the First Church of Otago, which was built in 1873 in Dunedin in Otago, on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand shows a very tall spire with a grand entrance and the rest of the church laid out behind it.

Over the years the church has had to undergo some restoration to keep it in good condition and to preserve history, but as it was built so well in the beginning, it hasn't had to undergo many repairs. The residents of Dunedin are very proud of this the First Church and tell all visitors that they must go and see it while they are in the city; it's not a sight to be missed. Some visitors have compared it to some of the Gothic cathedrals of Europe and the design of the exterior certainly makes it look that way.
