We visited this spot with our guide it was tucked away in busy Chennai. It was where St Thomas hid in the cave. The gardens showed the stations of the cross but they had a very new meditation area with a magnificent modern depiction of Christ which I found very beautiful the light was perfect in there. They also were placing some lovely mosaics into the windows.
They have a toilet there but I was shown to the special seated toilet in the main hall.

surprising visit underground to the shrine where St Thomas hid, a cave with tunnels which he used to escape. Photos are allowed but lighting is dim. can be slippy so take care

Location was excellent, the ambience was holistic, wish visitors there were more sensitive as this was a holy place rather than a picnic spot
Ideal place to let your thoughts flow towards a spiritual wellbeing

Thank you God for your ways to send Thomas here. It was great to walk where he walked even 2000 years later

It was very interesting to read that one of Jesus's twelve apostles had ever set foot in India and settled in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, and encounted hostility against his preaching. A small chapel built there in 1551AD is still remained.

It is believed that St Thomas who was one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus and mortally wounded took refuge here. The place is best suited for pilgrim groups as the shrine has a lot of religious importance.The underground basalt cave has a perennial spring coming out of the rocks.
