  • The church stands in the middle of the fisherman's village and has its own particular charm but I think the best attractions of Kyanakumari is the small fishing village around the large white Church. Walk along the narrow streets of this part of Kyanakumari in the middle of the everyday life of the local people was a good experience. Very quiet and peaceful. Let us a visit!

  • ... and imagine you are in a sun-drenched Spanish or Portuguese town. What is India? You probably teleportirovalo in Europe), Snow-white high Church in NeoGothic style attracts attention already from afar: strict, majestic, it is situated in a small square, which is the statue of the Christ Statue (a copy of the "Pieta" Michelangelo). Around the perimeter of the square is decorated with sculptural groups "way of the cross". Catholics, Christians and, in principle, the Gothic and neo-Gothic architecture, respectively, this building will definitely enjoy it. However, a person of another religion can feel here a little embarrassed. This is probably a strange contrast, when Indians Christianity, look at Pilgrim from a European country, "replacing" cross on the neck on Tilak bindis, and Rudraksha and call of Indian gods proved to be stronger. But then I remember vintage Tamil movie "ADI Parashakti", which pronikshijsja the greatness of the goddess and survivor from arrogance European passionately talks to his wife: "Mariamman Temple? Who is goddess Mariamman Temple? You probably mean the Virgin Mary? -Oh yes! (exclaims husband)-Virgin Maria! Mariamman Temple! How did I not realize this earlier?! "and they get up on her knees before a statue of the Virgin Mary to pray to the goddess Mariamman, and Goddess in the guise of a little girl looks at them and smiling.
