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
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.
This is one of the oldest churches in India, built in 594 AD. The Edappally pilgrim church were the richest catholic shrine in Kerala. Due to the uncountable miracles of Edappally St George. Since the old church was found to be too small to accommodate the overgrown congregation, a new church was built in the present location in A.D. 1080. On 1 January 2001, at 8 A.M., the foundation stone, blessed by Pope John Paul II, was laid for the third church. This new church, which was consecrated in April 2015 ( Wikipedia ).
The most gorgeous church in Kerala, its located beside the famous LULU mall. The architecture of the church is fabulous and designed beautifully. The art in side the chruch hall is simply superb. The art tells the story about god. Taking pictures inside the hall is strictly prohibited, but still some people capture some pictures from mobile phone. They have maintained well the surrounding of the chruch.
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.
