I don’t know why I never knew about this, maybe I was living under a rock but St. Thomas is said to have reached India preaching gospel in 52AD and martyred in Mylapore in 72AD. The famous Thomas Mount of Chennai is where it is believed St. Thomas was speared, upon the orders by the local king furious of his growing influence. His remains were buried in Mylapore, later most of which was transferred to Ortona, Italy. However, a bone from his hand and the lance that killed him are still at Mylapore, in Santhome Basilica. The interesting thing is there are only 4 basilicas in the world built over Apostle’s tombs and one of them is this one church. This makes it pretty special.
The British rebuilt the present day Gothic style Santhome church in 19th century after the Portuguese style church built in 15th century perished in a fire. Inside the church on the stained glass panel, is etched the story of Doubting Thomas. So I wasn’t aware of this phrase’s origin either. It was like finally being able to connect the dots; I knew all these things but never knew the common thread that connected them. But one more thing that took me by surprise was the presence of a Dhwaja Stambha at this church. These traditional Hindu flagpoles can be found in most of the South Indian Temples, which are used to signal the festival celebrations when the flag is hoisted. However, in a weird twist of cultural assimilation, most of the churches in Tamil Nadu now carry a Dhwaja Stambha! It is a great privilege to see such unity in the religious representations and Tamil Nadu and we don’t think you would find any reason to not book cheap flights from Los Angeles to Chennai.
