This church in Kerala is a major site of pilgrimage. If you do plan to go here, don’t go around Easter. You won’t be able to see the actual church because there are simply too many people around. This church is said to have been built on the spot where St. Thomas himself prayed, and where a golden cross appeared because of him. It’s set on the top of a hill, climbing which is part of the pilgrimage. The footprints of St. Thomas are supposed to still be there. But if you don’t go during the rush time, it’s a great trek with a very nice church at the end of it.
