St Thomas Basilica

St Thomas Basilica is one of the three churches built of an apostle of Jesus. The other two being St Peter’s Basilica in Rome and Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela built over the tomb of St.James in Spain.

This ancient church was the place of my visit along with santhome beach

The shrine of st thomas is built on the tomb of st thomas who came to chennai in 52AD. The church is rebuilt over the years and now there are two buildings

One is the church itself and other is the museum, which contains various artifacts and books written in latin and portugese.
