Until 1976, the spiritual center of the Syrian Orthodox in New Delhi was the St. Mary's Church at Hauz Khas. The foundation stone of this church was laid by late Patriarch Mor Ignatius Ya`qub III in 1964. Due to the unfortunate schism in the Malankara church in the early 1970s, the Syrian Orthodox Christians owing allegiance to the Patriarchate of Antioch were forced to find another place of worship.
