Established in the ancient period of 1844, St John’s Church in the Wilderness is located on the northern end of Nainital, also referred to as Mallital. This church is situated close to the Naina Devi Temple.

The story as per the pages of history dates back to the year 1844 when the Bishop of Calcutta, Daniel Wilson, had come on a visit to lay the foundation of the church. Since he fell ill, he had to rest in an unfinished house near the forest. Thus the church was named as St. John in the Wilderness Church. This church is a memorial for the victims of the 1880 landslide; the names of the victims are inscribed on a brass plaque.
