Sagaya Madha Church, Thoraipakkam, OMR Road, Chennai

A Brief History Sagaya Madha Church, Thuraipakkam located on the Old Mahabalipuram Road is 6 kms away from Thiruvanmiyur and 10 kms away from Santhome Cathedral Basilica. Around 40 years ago, Parish Priest of Kovalam Fr. K.M. Joseph had a humble beginning by erecting a small hut for the people of Thuraipakkam to have their religious services, at the same place where we want to build the new Church. Services at the hut continued even after inaugurating the new church in Perungudi in 1984. In 1999, Fr. Mathew Vettical put efforts in declaring Thuraipakkam church as a substation after replacing the hut to a concrete structure and was inaugurated by Rt. Rev. Dr. Lawrence Pius, Auxiliary Bishop of Madras – Mylapore and dedicated to the Mother of Perpetual Help. Later Fr. Thomas Mundackal expanded the church both sides to satisfy the growing needs. In 2007 Church was elevated to an independent parish with further extensions and blessed by Most Rev. Dr. Neethinathan, Bishop of Chingleput on 25thMarch 2007, when Fr. Patrick was the Parish Priest of Perungudi. Fr. Joseph Sengol’s contribution in making this place getting the Independent parish is inevitable. Fr. Arockiaraj became the first Parish Priest of the independent parish.


Present Status

  1. Over the years there was a considerable number devotees have increased and present church is not able to accommodate their needs.
  2. Catechism, Evening tuitions for the poor in the locality and other religious organizations are not finding enough space to gather and function well.
  3. Rainy seasons bring leaking issues since the existing Church was altered in the past and it is not in good condition to alter again.
  4. Our parishioners are going to other Churches as the result of space crunch.
  5. Major religious events and other ceremonies are becoming chaotic due to space.

New Church

New Church has been planned for a built area measuring 12000 Sq Ft having two levels. First floor is meant for religious worship purpose and the ground level is for multipurpose.


We, Sagaya Madha Parish family request your kind self to contribute generously towards rebuilding the Church and get blessed abundantly. Our parish family is confident to get contribution to complete this noble purpose from kind hearts.

Madras Crocodile Bank, Chennai

The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust, founded in 1976 by Romulus Whitaker and few other like minded people is a public Trust managed by a Board of Trustees. The CrocBank is located 40 km south of Chennai city on 3.2 hectares along India’s east coast road with the Bay of Bengal as a backdrop. The high aquifer on the sandy coast provides sufficient water supply and the proximity to the major ancient temple complex and tourist destination at Mahabalipuram ensures annual visitation. The Bank was initially established for the conservation and study of Indias three endangered crocodilians: the mugger, Crocodylus paluster , the gharial, Gavialis gangeticus , and the saltwater crocodile, Crocodylus porosus.

Starting with 30 mugger adults, the Bank has bred over 5000 and now holds over 2400 crocodilians of 14 different species. By 1987 the CrocBank developed a much broader focus, and became the Center for Herpetology, Indias premier institution for herpetofaunal conservation, research and education. Currently besides crocodilians, the Bank maintains 12 endangered species of turtles and tortoises, five species of snakes, including the King Cobra, Ophiophagus hannah , water monitor lizards, Varanus salvator salvator , two species of pythons and albino cobras. Housed in enclosures very similar to their natural habitat visitors can get a close view of how these reptiles live in the wild.

Over the years, the CrocBank has supplied zoos with crocodiles, crocodile eggs, snakes, water monitor lizards, iguanas for breeding programs and for exhibits. In doing so, it has helped ensure that populations in the wild are not utilized for this purpose and remain unaffected. Surplus reptiles at the CrocBank are available for transfer and exchange.

Visitors to the CrocBank include school and college groups, local and foreign tourists, besides amateur and professional herpetologists from within India and overseas. Apart from the entertainment value, the signboards and other visual aids sensitize people to the importance of reptiles in their ecosystems. School and college groups receive special talks and demonstrations including the chance to cuddle a baby crocodile or our amiable pythons.

Plan your visit
The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology is one of the largest reptile zoos in the world. It is spread over eight and a half acres of land and is home to over 2500 reptiles. We give you an opportunity to have an interactive experience with the various denizens at the zoo. Apart from our guided tours we have a wide variety of other activities for all ages that are both informative and fun.
