Wat je gaat doen
I will take you to Little Mount. It is a cave in which St.Thomas hid in AD 68 and did penance. I will show you 3 memorable things here. First i will show you the palm print and hand print believed to be those of St.Thomas himself! Next i will show you the masonry cross cut at the top of the hill which is believed to be the cross before which St.Thomas prayed. And finally i will show you the spring inside the hill which is perennial and is supposed to be his miracle. Our next destination today would be the hill where St Thomas was murdered in AD72. I will also take you to a shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Expectation which was built in 1523. We visit the famous San Thome Basilica, the principal church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madras and Mylapore. The Shrine preserves a small bone of the Saint and the head of the lance with which the Saint was pierced. We will also get to see an ancient painting of Our Blessed Mother St. Francis Xavier used to pray.
I live in Chennai and am passionate about history an culture of my city. With a background in Human Resources, my mission in life is to provide an immersive cultural experience to people traveling to Chennai. I have been hosting guests to Chennai for over a decade. I love taking people to hidden gems in Chennai and around which many locals are also not aware of! I indulge my guests not only with the history and culture of the place but also the local food at the best local hangouts. My satisfaction lies in getting my guests mingle with the local people who otherwise they will not have access to as a "tourist".

Waar je zult zijn
Little Mount is where St Thomas used to do his penance. There is an opening to the east of the cave through which St.Thomas escaped when his pursuers caught up with him here. Our second destination is St Thomas Mount. On 21st December AD 72, St Thomas was murdered on this hillock. San Thome Basilica, the principal church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madras was built in neo gothic style by the Portuguese in 16th century.
