A section of the north wing of the St. Thomas Cathedral in San Thome is undergoing restoration now. The section has been barricaded for now.
This part of the cathedral hosted the Blessed Sacrament altar where nuns of the congregation based in this campus led prayers and meditation throughout the day.
People were also allowed to reflect and pray here.
Water leaks and cracks in this section of the cathedral, a heritage place were observed sometime ago and the church administration decided on the repair and restoration now.
This space adjoins the north transept of the cathedral.
Extensive repair and restoration work of the cathedral was undertaken last year.
