In the year 52 AD a bearded man walked the sands of a beautiful beach in the port town of Mylapore.

He spoke of a new God in a new land, and left his footprints on the sands of time.And therein lies the story of Christianity in India. Join us, as we let the story unfurl before you; the story of a man who doubted God’s word, of men who changed the cityscape with their distinctive architecture, of a Church without a congregation and of men who brought in the skies of their homeland to prayer halls.
Join Storytrails as we walk you through Chennai’s Christian history and stories, from the humble arrival of St. Thomas, to the British who left behind a cathedral of neo-gothic splendor. There are stories behind everything you see; struggles for power and dominance, profound debates over philosophy, and varying explanations of what it means to be human or to be divine.

Come and discover the rich traditions of Christianity in India. Understand the forces that shaped it, and experience a part of Chennai you may never have expected.
