History of the Pilgrim Centre of
 
The St. Mary Queen of Peace Basilica located in the Palayam/Cantonment area of the city of Thiruvananthapuram in the state of Kerala is the first Syro-Malankara Catholic Church to be elevated to the rank of a Catholic basilica. 

The enthronement of Archbishop Mar Ivanios took place in this pro-cathedral on the same day. The roof of the new church was made of tin sheets therefore people called it the 'Tin Church' (Thakara Palli). In 1991 the 'Tin Church' was replaced with a new building; Archbishop Benedict Mar Gregorios dedicated this new church to St. Mary Queen of Peace.

On November 10. 2008 at the St. Mary's Cathedral Pattom Trivandrum Leonardo Sandri Papal representative and Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches announced the designation of the Queen of Peace Pro-Cathedral in Thiruvananthapuram as a basilica. Major Archbishop Moran Mor Baselios Cleemis Catholicos dedicated the church as the St. Mary Queen of Peace Basilica on December 7 2008.
