St Anthony's Church Kochikade - Review

This is one of the most curious churches you'll ever visit. From the outside, it is by every appearance a regular Catholic Church. But the second you step in, it's as if you've stepped into a pagan temple. There are a dozen statues of Christian saints, and you will find lines of church-goers making offerings to each saint in a manner that is definitely non-traditional. The statue of St. Anthony is especially popular, as there are stories of miracles associated to it. During times of festival, the entire church is usually decked out in full Hindu-style pagan pizzazz. This all inclusive nature of the church has made a favourite of people of every imaginable faith in Colombo. The church was built in 1905 by an Indian Catholic. The church is an important cultural asset in Indo-Sri Lankan relationships.
