Luz

There is this Luz corner in Madras. And there's also this Luz church. Now, does someone know whether the Luz church is actually the "Our Lady of Light" church ?

I am thinking on these lines because Luz in Spanish means light.

    I think in Chennai's case it's the Portugese influence. Luz means light in Portugese, not sure about Spanish.
