At a distance of seven Kms from Chennai Central Railway Station (positioned on the Southern finish of Marina Seashore, in Mylapore), San Thome Cathedral Basilica is one among Chennai’s historic landmarks. This Cathedral was initially inbuilt 1504. It was rebuilt in 1890 with a 180 ft basilica.
This is without doubt one of the high vacationer locations to go to in Chennai metropolis. The church will get its identify from St.Thomas, the apostle of Jesus who’s believed to have come to India someday throughout 52 A.D. It’s believed he was killed on St. Thomas Mount simply exterior town in 78 AD and his stays interred in Santhome seashore the place a church was later constructed. A number of years later, one other church was constructed additional inland and his mortal stays had been transferred right here.
