Sacred Heart Tours
Our Lady of Good Health
Our Lady of Good Health also known as Our Lady of Vailankanni and was built in the late 16th century.
Velankanni is fondly known as the 'Lourdes of the East'. The shrine is a great combination of international, multicultural, and religious harmony.
There is an interesting practice here that pilgrims offer candles to the mother to cure themselves. Candles are in shape of the respective ailment- a heart in case of cardiac complications and lungs in case of tuberculosis and so on.
