Photographer's Note

enroute from madurai to rameswaram is this grand church of heritage value.the church took 10 years to build and was blessed in 1894. the history of the church is that a french lady who had a problem in heart prayed towards the sacred heart of jesus and got cured miraculously. so she bid to build a church for the sacred heart of jesus similar to the church in reinns(not sure of spelling) in france.the church looks huge and grand in contrast to its surrounding which is a simple village. still large crowd gather every first friday in this church. the building had detoriated much and is now being renovated. that is why the paint is looking so fresh and bright.
a good example of india's diversity.
