Spend quality time with family and Parents at Velankanni. Localites are very helpful and the place has changed since I had last visited. Food is much more safer, thanks to good hotels coming up in the area. Easily accessible for people who takes the bus.

"A famous religious destination"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 30, 2016
Our Lady of Velankani is a famous religious destination for Indians. You see more of Non-Christians than Christians here because people have experienced huge miracles here. The best time to visit is between Christmas to March and if you like crowds than September. The quality of hotels are ok.

"A trip to historic Velankanni"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 16, 2016
I had been to Velankanni by train in September 2015. Nagapattinam was carved out as a district from Thanjavur in 1991. In the old heydays, Nagapattinam was ruled by the Cholas and the Pandyas. The major festivals celebrated in Nagapattinam include Pongal and Kandoori. Nagapattinam is reachable from all major cities of India through all the three modes of transport i.e Road, rail and air.

The must-visit attractions around Nagapattinam include Tranquebar, Nagore and Velankanni. Tranquebar is located around 35 kilometers from Nagapattinam and it displays brilliant influence of Danish architecture. Velankanni is located around 14 kilometers from Nagapattinam and is a holy city for christians in India. Here, the sorrowing mother is seen holding Infant Jesus in her hands. Velankanni is part of the coastline abutting Bay of Bengal. The Nagore mosque is an important shrine for the followers of Islam.

"Its all divine with nice surroundings"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 26, 2016
Vellankani is a sacred Basilica for the Catholics community. This is located in Nagapattinam district in Tamil Nadu. We can reach this place by rail or road, easily connected by buses from Bangalore and Chennai, and by train from Chennai. I try to visit this shrine at least once every year. This place has peace and tranquillity surrounding it. This place is surrounded by hotels for every budget, and additional to it the shrine management also provides rooms and dormitories for the pilgrims. The Shrine is close to the Vellankani beach. This place offers mouth watering seafood you can choose from crabs to prawns to seasonal fishes. The shrine management also operates few canteens on the premise where you can have good quality regional food for breakfast and lunch. This place has an Aura of its own. Bag packers can travel at very nominal expenses. You will also find large families visiting this shrine also carry along food stuffs and use the community kitchen set-up by the shrine management at nominal fees to prepare dishes for the whole family. You can by souvenirs from the stall managed by the Shrine. They also have their own museum displaying many offerings offered by the pilgrims. This Shrine is one of the best managed religious places in India. The best time to visit Vellankani is during the Church feast during August or during Christmas or Easter.
