The Basilica of Our Lady of Good Health is situated at the residential area of Velankanni in the territory of Tamil Nadu in southern India. The Roman Catholic Latin Rite Basilica is given to Our Lady of Good Health. Dedication to Our Lady of Good Health of Velankanni can be followed to the mid-sixteenth century and is ascribed to three supernatural occurrences at destinations around where the Basilica stands, the nebulous vision of Mary and the Christ Child to a sleeping shepherd kid, the curing of a weak buttermilk merchant, and the protect of Portuguese mariners from a vicious ocean storm.
These records depend on oral custom and there are no composed or bore witness to records in help of them. The Holy See has not endorsed these nebulous visions. The sanctuary was at last worked by Portuguese mariners. Over 500 years after the fact, the nine-day celebration and festivity is as yet watched and moves almost 2 million explorers every year. The Shrine of Our Lady of Vailankanni, otherwise called the "Lourdes of the East," is a standout amongst the most-frequented religious destinations in India.
