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.

St. George Syro-malabar Catholic Forane Church, Edappally, Ernakulam Reviews - Write a Review
Too luxurious for a religious place. Doesn't give the atmosphere for peaceful prayer. Give the feel of a five star hotel free of cost. Well constructed and superb architecture. It is worthwhile to see the building and interior by all. One of most beautifully constructed religious places in Kerala. Really show the power and influence religions now a days have over the people. It is high time people should take a moderate stand in the case of religion and politics.
Its a very beautiful church situated near one of the busiest junctions in Cochin. Its pretty big, got very beautiful sculptures. It has a very beatiful architecture. It sure is one of the must visit place for people/ tourists trying to explore the beauty of this vibrant city.
We can attend the holy mass whole heartedly. And the architecture too is good. I loved to be at there.
One of the most beautifully renovated churches in Kerala. One of the largest also. The church internal area is very beautifully designed and visitors can feel a little awe when visiting. Footwear is not permitted inside the church.
Awesome,elegant and one of the most beautifully renovated church's in India . A must go place for Catholics and ideal place for praying too.Car parking available too and located right next to highway.
