Church of our Lady of Velankanni, Velankanni

Marvel at the pristine white architecture of Church of our Lady of Velankanni, a Roman Catholic basilica. Two Gothic spires rise up from the facade of the main basilica, beyond which you'll find other shrines, a pond, and stations of the cross and rosary. Enjoy peaceful reflection within the church and grounds, away from the busy central surroundings. Bring along your camera to capture the striking 18th-century structure, which dates back to the era of Catholic persecution by the Dutch colonialists.
