There are a surprisingly good number of Catholic churches in Delhi dedicated to the patron saint, St. Thomas. Of these, two go by the name of St. Thomas Church, the first one being at Mandir Marg. A second church by the same name was established in 1972 in Sector 2, R K Puram and is considered a landmark church of South Delhi. Saint Thomas is remembered worldwide as the 'Doubting Thomas' for his having disbelieved the Resurrection of Jesus, wanting to confirm it for himself. It is also in reply to one of his questions that Jesus is claimed to have said, ?I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.? It is said that St. Thomas came to India as one of the 12 apostles on mission, where he preached and converted thousands of people to Christianity, thus causing outrage and insecurity among native castes. The apostle was thus questioned by the local ruler and the saint was condemned to death around AD 72 in Madras. The church is located at the outset of Church Road in Sector II, R K Puram. It is surrounded by several schools and a number of temples in the vicinity. It is close to many tourist attractions like Sarojini Nagar, Hauz Khas and Green Park markets as well as Hauz Khas Village. To reach the church one may take an auto from Green Park metro station, which is at a distance of 2 kilometres. Source: http://www.sodelhi.com/churches/5017-...
