Church of Our Lady of Good Health

Phone : 91-413-2600799

The church is located in Ariyankuppam, a village 4 km south of Puducherry, and makes for an interesting cycling expedition off the beaten track.

After the French coming to Pondicherry in 1673, Armenians under the leadership of Bishop ADDA SIMON built the Church of Our Lady of Conception in 1690. This church was given to the Jesuits of the Carnatic Mission around 1700 and the church was renamed Church of Our Lady of Health.

The interior has rounded arches carrying a vault over the central aisle. A freestanding Crucifix is displayed upon the altar and brightly painted wooden images are set on shelves in the side walls.

It has been a very popular pilgrimage amongst the people of Pondicherry for the last 270 years.
