On the trail of St. Thomas
This trail traces the story of the arrival of Christianity to India, a story that began way back in 52 CE. Follow the footsteps of St Thomas, the apostle who reached these shores, determined to take the word of God to faraway places. How did Christianity change in the first 1000 years since its birth? And how did those changes reflect in the practice of the religion in India? This trail takes you to places in Chennai where St Thomas lived, where he was martyred and where he was finally buried.
The trail starts at St Thomas Mount and ends at the Santhome Basilica.
