It was a dream come to for us when we reached Velanghanni church. Two day visit is sufficient to attend the church mass in our mother tongue. We had our head's shaved

I would assure you will come back to this place again and again after every visits. The church offers you the spiritual healing and miracles in your life. I personally received many miracles in my life after the visit over here. I always recommend a visit to this church at least once in your life. A must visit and trust... More

This is a place which comes to my mind, whenever I think of travel, peace, blessing.... I visit atleast once a year. It has become a habit now. Never been denied of our prayers. Blessed with whatever I have asked.

An amazing experience, a memorable pilgrimage with memories everlasting. One would always feel like coming back. The beach is very poorly managed. Need more cleaning staff and lifeguards with proper facilities to monitor the 1000's playing at the beach. The Church is beautiful and sacred. You can feel the holiness while you are around. I am definitely coming back.

Beautiful church architect. Very nice place to visit with family & friends. Lots of hotels nearby. Well arranged & maintained, Cheap accommodations owned by church are also available. Nearby beach is untidy. Now train facility also extended. 3 - 4 other churches also nearby An excellent spiritual location.
