Good small shrine

It is the birth place of Saint Chavara. The place is very rustic and they have retained original birth house of Saint Chavara. Quite interesting

Nothing disturbs you. But only a kind of peace of mind while going through the historical monuments.

This was a pit stop for us mid way along the backwater tour. They had lovely restrooms which were welcome and the church was pretty. Most of all, it gave us an opportunity to see a lot of kids returning home from school which was fun.
