Vailankanni is fondly known as the 'Lourdes of the East'
because like Lourdes in France, millions of pilgrims visit the
Shrine throughout the year, praying to Our Lady for various
needs and thanking her for the favors received through her
intercession. Tradition recounts that Mother Mary appeared with
the Infant Jesus in this small hamlet at the end of the 16th or
in the early 17th century. Ever since, Vailankanni is the
most important destination and almost the synthesis of all
Marian Sanctuaries for the pilgrims of the world.
The crowds of pilgrims come here regardless of creeds and languages.
Our Lady of Vailankanni devotions down through the centuries have
proved the Shrine to be of divine origin and has assumed international
character. Mary, the focus of unity at Vailankanni,
is a clear proof of international, multicultural,
and religious harmony.
