St. Thomas Mount Church lies near the Chennai International Airport. Constructed by the Portuguese in 1523, the church lies on the small hillock where St. Thomas, the missionary was assassinated. During 14th and 15th centuries the church fell in ruins which led the Portuguese to move the saint’s remains to a new tomb and constructed a new church.

However, the church was demolished again in 1893 and a new cathedral was constructed in 1896. Again, the church was raised to the status of a basilica as a tribute to the martyred St. Thomas in 1956.
