Vailankanni Church

The Vailankanni shrine within the church is credited with miraculous powers of healing and good health.

Vailankanni literally means the shrine of the Virgin of Velai, but this church is better known as the Lourdes of the East. Portuguese merchants built the permanent structure, which was then consecrated as a shrine, dedicated to Our lady of Good Health.
