St. Thomas Cathedral Basilica, Chennai or San Thome Basilica is a Roman Catholic minor Basilica in Santhome, in the city of Chennai (Madras) in India. It was built in the 16th century by Portuguese explorers, over the Tomb of Saint Thomas, one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus. In 1893, it was rebuilt as a Church, with the status of a Cathedral by the British. The British version still stands today. It was designed in Neo-Gothic style, by British architects in the late 19th century. This Church is one of the only three known Churches in the world, built over the tomb of an Apostle of Jesus, the other two being St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, and Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Galicia, Spain.
