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.

  • No other words, best shrine in Chennai, the evening view from this place is speechless, it's in heart of city will take around 5 min to reach from city side, Good view of airport and city, more than that this place is well maintained and less crowded

  • A very peaceful place for those who look to get out of the city coupled with ample parking space for cars, bikes and even buses. An amazing view of the city can also be witnessed.

  • The shrine is nestled at the top of St. Thomas Mount. Mass is offered everyday. A peaceful place to meditate and worship God and to honour St. Thomas. Please do not treat this place as a tourist attraction. It's holiness should be preserved.

  • I have visited this place and from up you can see Airport, metro and many thing. The church is very good and it is quite place.

  • Peaceful place... see nice views of Chennai
