    Why to visit this place

    Santhome Church is a living testament to Christian faith and one of the three wonders of the world that house the tombs of Christ's original disciples. Santiago de Compostela in Spain and St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City are the other two. It was built in honour of Saint Thomas, who was an Apostle of Jesus Christ. Santhome Church is the most visible symbol of multi-cultural and religious harmony, as people of all faiths come here to seek solace and eternal peace. This church was originally designed as a mausoleum, but due to its growing popularity and significance, it has been transformed into a basilica.




    Special Tip:

    Stay away from the Sacred memorials and Altar, as doing so may result in severe consequences.
