Located in the Nagapattinam District of Tamil Nadu, this lovely church is right on the coast and is visited by people of all faiths. The Gothic style church is one of the most important Catholic pilgrimage centers in the country and attracts around 20 million pilgrims from India and abroad every year. The place is well maintained and has a very peaceful atmosphere. Car parking is available free of cost

Velankanni Church, is the Basilica of Our Lady of Good Health, also known as Sanctuary of Our Lady of Velankanni, is a Marian shrine located at the small town of Velankanni in Tamil Nadu, South India. The Roman Catholic Latin Rite Basilica is dedicated to Our Lady of Good Health. Devotion to Our Lady of Good Health of Velankanni can be traced back to the mid-16th century, and is attributed to three separate miracles at the sites surrounding the Basilica: The apparition of Blessed Mary and the Christ Child to a slumbering shepherd boy, the healing of a handicapped buttermilk vendor, and the rescue of Portuguese sailors from a deadly sea storm. Initially, only a simple and modest chapel was built by the Portuguese sailors who washed ashore safely. More than 500 years later, the nine-day festival and celebration is still observed and draws nearly 5 million pilgrims each year. The Shrine of Our Lady of Vailankanni is also known as "the Lourdes of the East" because it is one of the most frequented pilgrimage centres in India.

Since this is based near coastal area, the weather was really humid and hot. As usual except myself no one was enjoying the weather. This is a huge area with multiple chapels, churches and grottos. We went to the chapel which is built on the spot, where the handicapped buttermilk boy was healed, and then visited the adjacent grotto, old main church and then headed to the church which was built in memory of the golden jubilee of the old church. Then we stopped for an ice cream break and then headed to the main church which was under construction and it was on the opposite direction. Be prepared to walk in the scorching sun, but visiting the church was surreal and divine. Then we headed to main church, the ground floor was under renovation and the mass (prayer) was going on in the first floor. So we couldn’t go inside, we stood outside, prayed and left the place. There is also a beach close by but others didn’t have my enthusiasm to visit due to the heat as they all wanted to get inside the AC car. So we walked back to the parking lot, got in the car and drove back to the hotel. This is the place not to be missed if you are in Velankanni, don't forg

A place frequently visited by me - either alone or with family. Great place to experience mental peace. Visited by people of all faith - no bar on entry. The Shrine Basilica is renowned for miraculous healing.

The Velankanni Church was originally built by Portuguese sailors on a site where a child was reported to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary. It remains an important Roman Catholic pilgrimage site in India drawing thousands of visitors every day. If you're on time (three blessings daily: 7:30 am, 12 noon, 7:00 pm), you can even have your car blessed in this 'village' of buildings, sanctuaries, hostels, charitable gift centres, meditation halls ++. Prayers and sermons are broadcast over loudspeakers. The site is so large, there is even one hall dedicated only to receiving donations: saris, clothing, jewellery, money ++. Prepare to queue and remove your shoes to enter the main church. Given it is a religious site, it is difficult to 'rate' such an attraction--it was fascinating to see the long lines and crowds of devotees, but it also felt very commercial, where there was as much emphasis on where to park as to where to pray.

Our stay in Church View Suites one of the best hotels in Velankanni was pleasant and immemorable. It is a newly constructed hotel with international standards, excellent architectural design and ultra modern facilities which would attract the people from all walks of life especially the devotees.The ambiance and amenities provided are excellent. We are very much overwhelmed by the hospitality of the staff. I would rather say that it is a paradise located to the close view of church of Basilica. Hope the devotees will enjoy their stay at Church View Suites.

An extremely beautiful and peaceful place to visit. We had been wanting to visit this place for over 10-15 years and when God called us this year we could visit the Church. We were very happy to spend time in the area, visiting other nearby Churches too. A must visit place to pray for good health.
