The Zion church at Poompuhar was built in the year 1701 by some of the first Dutch settlers in Poompuhar. It is another major tourist attraction in Poompuhar. It has since been rebuilt by the English twice over the course of their reign: once in 1782 and the second time in 1784.
The church, having been built in the days of the Renaissance era, offers a unique glimpse into the Danish style of architecture that dates back to that period. The church attracts many devotees who arrive here as part of their pilgrimage and is a recommended spot for one who is at Poompuhar.
