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.

St. George Syro-malabar Catholic Forane Church, Edappally, Ernakulam Reviews
One of the best good looking church in Kerala.... Good infrastructure and best build. Good place for conducting functions such as wedding etc. Ample car parking. Peaceful surroundings. Inside of the church is really amazing. Church has a beautiful architectural work. Best time to visit is during the night when we have the church lighted up. The golden work inside the church is so beautiful that one cannot take their eyes off
A must visit if you are in Kochi. The interior is simply magnificent with very beautiful three dimensional paintings/art work. The ceiling is done beautifully as well. The place can also be reached via the metro line. There is ample parking space. While photography is not allowed from the inside for obvious reasons you can still take these from the main gate.
Amazing architecture and infrastructure. Interior design is beautiful. Ample parking space. It is a famous Catholic Pilgrim Church with large shrine of St. George situated in Edappally, Kochi. Millions of people visit during the Feast of Saint George every year.
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.
