An obscure spiritual figure of the 18th century

My folks at home went to this awesome place at Aralvaimozhi, where Devasahayam Pillai is believed to have been martyred. He's apparently a great spiritual figure of the 18th century who suffered martyrdom for Christ... no one's really sure of it though, which is actually weird cause St. Francis Xavier arrived in the 16th century and his name is still alive and active in my hometown. They have a huge feast in his honour every December and pilgrims throng the area and the schools remain closed... the whole town is practically devoted to St. Xavier, but a man of the 18th century they find hard to remember... beats me.

Anyway, my sister sent these pix's and my mom asked me why they weren't up in my photography blog and I said 'Only the pictures I take go on my blog'. My mom told me not to act too smart and to put these pictures up here... so here they are.

Isn't this nice, the hills, the clouds and a turret...
This could easily pass off as a church in Italy... very pretty.
Isn't this spectacular... similar to the one in Brazil.
Bell Rock: It seems when Devasahayam was being murdered, huge chunks of rocks started tumbling down the side of the hill making a sound like that of a church bell ringing, kinda like a death knell.
The rock you see en caged below is apparently one of those 'bell ringing rocks', if you strike it with another stone it makes a ringing sound, whereas when the other nearby boulders are struck, you hear a normal rock on rock sound.
The church...



The view from the church...
I am definitely going here the next time I am home...

Hey Guys
I was looking around for [url=http://www.milesgershon.com][b]Entertainment Centers[/b][/url] or [url=http://www.milesgershon.com][b]Modern Wall Unit[/b][/url] (I'm not really sure what the difference is LoL) and was wondering if you know any resources to explain what I need to know to make an informed buying decision. Any review is appreciated.
Thanks in-advance for all your help

Mick

Is that the place where they have the "crying" rock and a tree that has some of the leaves on one side with a different color?
