Tranquebar, "The Queen of the Coromandal Coast" has rich traditions and a glorious past. It is the symbol of the Portuguese - Danish - French - English heritage. The first Protestant Christian Missionaries, Bartholomaeus Ziegenbalg and Heinrich Pluetschau; sent by the Danish King Frederick IV to preach the Gospels, landed on the shores of Tranquebar on 9th July 1706 A.D. and laid the foundation of Protestant Christian Churches in India. The Tamil Evangelical Lutheran Church was thus born in 1919 A. D.  They established schools, Homes and convert many locals to Christanity.  The New Jerusalem Church was built in 1718 A.D. at Tranquebar followed by the construction of the Bethlehem Church at Porayar.
Both Jerusalem Church and Bethlehem churches are Protestant churches established by the Danish missionaries.
