Virtual tour of Shrine of Vailankanni, the most important in Catholic India

2013-02-08

The Shrine Basilica of Our Lady of Health, located in southern India, by the Gulf of Bengal, is the most important pilgrimage site for Catholic in India. 

Nearly two million people travel each year to the small city to venerate the Virgin Mary, known here as the “Lourdes of the East.” 

When a monstrous tsunami ravaged Indonesia in 2004, it also affected the area around Vailankanni. However, the sanctuary emerged unscathed from the devastation.
