We visited the church during evening mass. There is a big statue of Jesus Christ in the church complex. We were fortunate ti witness the procession of church goers and also attended the mass thereafter. Overall it was very good experience

The church is humungous and the way it's built is just awesome. This is a recent built one, so the architecture looks so great and of course religiously it's filling too.

Morning Star is a beautifully constructed church. The altar looks amazing. I also liked the giant ceiling fan that looks like an helicopter wing. A must see church in Velankanni.

A trip to Velangini is naturally a journey of devotion and satisfaction for a faithful. While devotees throng the main Basilica for adoration, is an essential feature, visiting Velangini to see the evolution of new Churches/chapels/Statutes in itself is so rewarding. Morning Star Church is...More
