Tuticorin, the Pearl City, is one of the most important seaports in India. Located in the state of Tamil Nadu, this beautiful coastal city boasts of an affluent history that dates back to the 6th century AD. Many royal dynasties who ruled this city, including the Portuguese, Dutch and British have left Tuticorin with a number of structures that serve as major attractions. One of the prime attractions of the city is Our Lady of Snows Basilica. Dedicated to Virgin Mary, this church was built in the 16th century and presently, serves as one of the main Catholic pilgrimage centres in the country. The city is very green in its outlook, thanks to the tropical climate and the many well-maintained parks. During their stay, tourists can spend peaceful moments or go for a leisurely walk in one of the many parks that include Rajaji Park, Nehruji Park and Harbor Park. Besides these, there are many temples, such as Lord Bhagam Priyal Temple, Arulmigu Subramanya Swami Temple and Lord Mutharramman Temple.
