Church covered by creepers

I had visited Ross Island in 2008. This island was the headquarters of British Army prior to World War II. They had everything- barracks, hospitals, Officers' bungalows, swimming pool, power hiuse etc. There was a Church too. The Japanese had bombarded this island with full might. The Island was subsequently abandoned. After Indian Independence, the island came in the care of Indian Navy. By the time, creepers had covered all structures including the Church. The Indian Navy preserved these structures. They have become tourists' attraction. It takes about half an hour to reach this island by boat/steamers from Port-Blair.
