church of lady of ransom, kanya kumari, tamilnadu, india

In the 19th century the Roman Catholics built St. Thomas church at Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu. Later it was rebuilt and named as Lady of Ransom. This tall white structure is located in a naturally beautiful area near the Cape Point . A statue of Virgin Mary, 3 ft. tall, has been erected inside the church. It is believed that this statue was brought from Portugal in 1543. Fourteen incidents in connection with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ have been illustrated on wooden plaques fixed on fourteen points in the main hall. The story of St. Thomas is beautifully pictured on the colored glass windows. Today the Church of Lady of Ramsom is facing destruction.
