About St. Thomas Mount

This quaint place is a fascinating one, and if you are looking for a bit of spirituality or something a little offbeat, then is definitely the place for you. St. Thomas Mount is a small hillock close to the neighbourhood of Guindy and very near to Chennai International Airport. St. Thomas the Apostle is believed to have attained martyrdom on St. Thomas Mount, and in 1523 a shrine dedicated to Mother Mary was built to mark the spot. At the north end of the mount, is a gateway of four impressive arches bearing a cross. 160 steps lead up to the summit of the mount and the way is marked by 14 stations of the cross. Once you reach the top of the mount you get a panoramic view of the city of Chennai below.
