St. Thomas Mount National Shrine - Review

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.
