It has been said and believed that St Thomas lived in hiding at Little Mount around 2000 years back, in the year of AD 58. The cave still holds the marks which are believed to be Thomas’s handprint which he left before escaping from the cave. He had escaped from an opening that suddenly appeared through the cave and thus the place became significant. There is also the site of Thomas martyrdom which is three kilometers from here. That happened in the year AD 72. Little Mount and St Thomas are closely located and can be easily approached by general transport system.
