Places visited : Aralvaimozhi Prison, Kattadimalai, place where Devasahayam Pillai was killed, Peruvilai, Nattalam, Kottar and Puliyoorkurichi.

Aralvaimozhy, where Devasahayam was killed, is on the Nagercoil–Tirunelveli highway. At that spot on the hillock (called Kaattadimalai), devotees believe that rocks fell and were broken at that moment. One rock at the place makes bell-like sounds when knocked with a stone.

Devasahayam Pillai is buried in the Cathedral of St. Francis Xavier at Kottar in Nagercoil. Devasahayam’s tomb has been restored and beautified in view of the declaration of martyrdom and beatification.
Devasahyam Pillai’s clothes and other belongings are kept in a church in the small town of Vadakkankulam in Tirunelveli District of Tamil Nadu State, India. They are exposed at the church on 15 August every year, the feast of the Assumption of Mary. His wife was buried in the cemetery there.

Puliyoorkurichi, location of the water fountain believed to have quenched Devasahayam’s thirst, is on the Nagercoil–Trivandrum highway.
