Sitting pretty in Chennai’s neighbourhood of Guindy, the St Thomas Mount is this gorgeous little tiny hillock. The church has significance that relate to Syria. There are traces of the Syrian Christian’s church here with regard to St. Thomas the Apostle. The entire area has this characteristic vibe to it, given its being as one of the Chennai areas, that were highly populated by the Anglo-Indians in the 17th century. Under this church lies another church of The St. Thomas Garrison.
Its close proximity to the Chennai airport is an added benefit to make for a quick visit.

St. Thomas Mount National Shrine Reviews & Ratings
Apostle Thomas, Disciple of Jesus Christ was Martyred here. This place has historical significance and is patronized around the world. Great place to relax, meditate and unwind. The scenic top view of the city is worth the trip!
A Catholic spiritual place in Chennai. Cool breeze, positive vibes, good views from the top of the hill really takes our minds to different level. We can c the sea and airport from the top of the hill. Nice to have a visit. There are certain rules and regulations by the church. We have to pay toll if u bring a vehicle. Parking charge is there to park the vehicle. It is a safe place
