Little Mount

Little Mount information

Lonely Planet review

It is believed that from around AD 58, St Thomas lived in hiding at Little Mount . The cave still bears what some believe to be Thomas’ handprint, left when he escaped through an opening that miraculously appeared. Three kilometres on, St Thomas Mount (Parangi Malai) is thought to be the site of Thomas’ martyrdom in AD 72. Both mounts are about 1km from the Saidapet and St Thomas Mount train stations, respectively.
