About St. George Syro-malabar Catholic Forane Church, Edappally, Ernakulam
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
Way too luxurious for a place of worship. I don't consider this church as a place for worship. It's more like a tourist attraction. All facilities are arranged here for the visitors. Ample parking space. Free purified drinking water. It's one of the major attraction in Edappally.
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.
It is one of the ancient catholic church renovated in the recent years. When My school time I used to visit this (old) church at least once in a week. Now you can see a church with architectural marvel. It's amazing, inside it's superb. A proved landmark for Cochin. As many people commented, it's no more a spiritual place rather it's a tourist attraction.
I do not want to give this place five stars as a place of worship need not be this luxurious or ostentatious. But the church is so spectacular that it leaves both parishioners and visitors alike spellbound. I would recommend this church to everyone visiting Kochi as it'll be worth your while. You won't be disappointed. There is ample parking also so that's something visitors need not worry about.
Ancient church in Kochi. Built in around 500 A.D. Three churches are there. A newly built church and two previous churches. The old church here is a very good ancient architecture and art. It is very good and calm place for pray than new church. There is very old church adjacent to these churches. It was built in 592 A D.
