It’s a Catholic church located at Kanyakumari. From the shores itself, the three towering spires of this off-white Gothic structure with a distinct Portuguese feel is visible.
The Church of Our Lady of Ransom is more than hundred year old and devoted to Mother Mary. The central tower which 153 feet tall, crowned with a cross of pure gold catches every eye. It’s truly a beautiful structure and looks gorgeous beside the molten blue noon sky. The striking contrast of grand Gothic facade and its bare interiors are amazing.
The interiors without pews, except with the presence of a beautiful idol of Mother Mary and a little Cross and the colourful light patterns thrown by the tainted glass windows on the bare floor gives you the impression that the church is not functioning.
The church holds mass in Tamil, for the local fishing folks regularly on the sand floors of the parish.
