“A fine place to visit. One of the Pilgrim centres of catholics, on the sea shore of Alappuzha suburbs.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We had been to the shrine on an ordinary day. But was told that St. Sebastian's feast day the whole of sea shore is not enough to hold the crowd, and you have to walk 2 - 3 Km to reach the shrine. No vehicle is allowed to the vicinity.
