  • Father James Bharataputra greeted me immediately when we arrived and explained how it came to him in a vision and the Tamil influences. He also explained how all the paintings at the facility were done by a teenage boy who has since become famous. Don't forget to get yourself a bottle of the spring water behind the Virgin Mary Shrine on the right side of the main building.
