Steeple Chase

Overview

In the year 52 AD a bearded man walked the sands of a 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.

This walk opens up a very interesting chapter of Chennai’s religious leaning. You will discover Chennai's Christian history and stories; from the humble arrival of St. Thomas to the British who left behind a cathedral of neo-gothic splendour, you will explore the forces that shaped Christianity as you experience a part of Chennai you may never have expected.
