Beautiful church right on the water

We stopped here during our two day boathouse trip in Kerala. This is one of the oldest churches around and looked very beautiful inside and out. The paintings inside the building and on the roof were spectacular. We spent a quiet 20minutes admiring everything. 🙏

Stunning church
Feb 2019 • Couples
Awesome in the true sense of the word. Kneeling and praying there I just didn't want to leave such was the peaceful and spiritual atmosphere. There are relics of 3 saints there too. A very steep climb up lots of steps so difficult to visit if not pretty mobile.

Phenomenal architecture and paintings that adorn the ceilings is comparable to churches seen in Europe. Worth a visit to understand the roots of Kerala Christian community

A wonderful building
Oct 2018 • Couples
We visited soon after the terrible floods of 2018. The church ha d been cleaned up and it was difficult to tell the disaster that had recently befallen it. The decorations were really interesting to see. If you get the opportunity try and visit the attached Primary School to understand the support the local people give their church.

St Mary's trip with Sabu

This wonderful church has to be visited if you stay in the backwaters at the Green Palace Hotel. To be in such good condition it had to be renovated and though is a jewel.

Built in 427 AD....but seems to be renovated from time to time. Doesn't look old at all. Nice place to visit. Also explore shops near by

Ravishing small church in the backwaters of Alleppey.
Sep 2017
I was on a boat with friends drifting down the backwaters of Alleppey, when we stopped by this Church. It's early and very Portuguese in design, with a charming and beautiful interior. There was a Mass going on while we were there and the church was very full of the local Christians, which added to the pleasure. However it did mean that though we could look at the interior we could not really examine it in detail.
