Interesting place to visit, beware lots of walking to do. Pilgrims everywhere, and seems to be a little commercialised now with asking for donations for everything. Lots of history behind the multiple churches and shrines.

The beautiful portrait and statue of our Mother Mary with her child Jesus is the main attraction you could ever see in Velankanni only.

Beautiful and clean. Has abundant parking and many hotels to eat and stay. Visited at noon and hence was unbearably hot. Evenings are the ideal time to visit.

This is must visit place in every Christian's life in India, especially during the Lent season & being there on a Saturday for the Novena's is very pacifying
