St. George Syro-malabar Catholic Forane Church, Edappally - Review

The Edappally Church Complex dates 14 centuries back when the country of India and the state of Kerala did not exist and the water occupied the space till the small harbor of Edappally.

Catholic religion was introduced here to the locals by St. Thomas the Apostle (alias Dideemos) who came to preach the Gospel. A small church was built here by Elangalloor Swaroopam (The Raja of Edappally) in 593 A.D. Over time the church was adapted and grown to accommodate the growing congregation and a bigger church was built next to the small one in 1080 A.D.

Today, the grand Church and its ethereal beauty surpasses time and space and offers a spiritual experience to anyone who visits. The small church is still preserved with all its antiques. Art lovers can also appreciate the intricacy that is seen in the interiors and architecture.

  • This church also known as "Edappally Church" is one of the most beautiful churches in Kerala with crores of money spent on beautification. There is an old and new church in the compound with the old church being renovated with a breath taking altar. The new church is huge with intricate wall paintings. The altar here too is breath taking. There is ample parking space.

  • The most gorgeous church that I've ever been to till date- beautiful would be an understatement for this architectural marvel in Kerala. As spectacular as it looks from the outside, it's thrice as more arresting on the inside. Photography is prohibited inside the church because of obvious reasons but you can take pictures from the main door thereby still respecting the religious decorum. It's a magnificent building radiating splendor from every angle, but be careful not to visit it in the noon time as you'll probably end up getting a sunburn. The entrance is not provided with any sort of shade so you have to walk in the sun all the way from main entrance through the drive way and the ascending walk way to the actual building. The old church has also been retained inside the premises so you can visit it too if you want to. Restrooms are clean and well maintained. Connectivity is smooth and hassle free, thanks to the easily commutable location.

  • Been to this church few days ago while the church festival was going on. Such a lovely atmosphere. The surroundings are kept really neat and clean. Facilities are very welcome. Security is also strong. If you're with your family, this will be a safe place to go than any other church. Highly recommended.

  • Majestic! The church is filled with so much of luxury, at the same time its so peaceful and the luxury doesn't overpower the divinity in it. Its so calm and soothing and there is something indescribable about the place. If you are in kochi and whatever religion you may belong to this is a must place to visit. Feels like Vatican!

  • Awesome church and what a beautiful wall arts on the church. It's one of the famous church in the Ernakulam city. It's a must watch palace for the tourists. Superb church for number of reasons.. I loved it even though i am a Hindu I enjoyed the place.
