St. Francis Xavier has been an influential evangelist in India. He has found followers in many of the coastal towns including Goa. The Saint Francis Xavier church is homage to this saint who had travelled all over the subcontinent to spread the message of Christianity. It is interesting that the saint received the land for the church as an award for helping the king drive away the enemy which he did in a very peaceful manner,.
The Church is dedicated to Mary the mother of Christ and stands in Kottar in Nagercoil in Kanyakumari. It is a beautiful church plastered in a serene white hue along with the typical coastal clay roof. In many ways, the church stands as a symbol of the amity between two very different cultures. Tourists should definitely pay it a visit to see the Christian culture in Tamil Nadu. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kanyakumari itinerary 1 day.
