Senhora Da Expectacao (Our Lady of Expectation)
Mo to Fr from 05:00 AM to 08:00 PM,Sa to Su from 04:00 AM to 11:00 PMBuilt in 1523 by the Portuguese on St. Thomas Mount, Senhora Da Expectacao (Our Lady of Expectation) is no conventional church but actually a symbolic white structure, that stands majestically on the scenic hilltop. This shrine was built on the spot where St. Thomas died, way back in 72 AD. It may be small, but nevertheless is historically significant and evokes a sense of melancholy and wonder. Next to it, there's a chapel and a wonderful golden structure depicting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
