St Jude’s Shrine

The grounds of a Cantonment seminary between the station and the GPO hold one of the most important Catholic pilgrimage sites in India, St Jude’s Shrine. A bone belonging to Jude the Apostle, patron saint of hopeless causes, is said to be buried in the foundations of the sombre grey and white cathedral. On his feast day, October 28, thousands come to plead their causes.
