St. Thomas Mount is a small hill close to the Chennai Airport. it takes it's name from St. Thomas who is belived to have been killed on top of the hill in 72 AD (or CE as it is now referred to). A church was built by the Portuguese at that spot in 1523 AD. it is known as the Church of Our Lady of Expectations but is more popularly known as Mount St. Thomas Church. I was there with my sketching group a few weeks ago and sketched this on location with a gel pen and then added the colour at home.
