I have heard that there are only 8 Basilicas in India. What are they? What is the difference between a Basilica and a Cathedral?

There are 21 basilicas in India of which 17 are of the Roman Catholic Church, 3 are of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church and 1 is of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church. The state of Kerala has 8 basilicas including all 4 non-Roman Catholic basilicas while Tamil Nadu has 5 basilicas. All the remaining basilicas are the only ones in their respective states or union territories. India is the country with the most basilicas in Asia.

A cathedral is the principal church of a diocese while basilica is the name given to certain churches granted special privileges by the pope.
