Velankanni Church, Velankanni

(200+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
Marvel at the pristine white architecture of Velankanni Church, 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. Put Velankanni Church into our Velankanni trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
