Also known as the St. George Syrian Orthodox Cathedral, this ancient church was built almost 13 centuries ago in 722AD. It is possibly one of the first churches in India! It was established after the prominent Syrian Christian family Maliackel family had to find a place to bury a member of their family and needed to build a church around the location of the burial. On the 3rd of December, the church celebrates the feast of Maphryono Mor Baselios Yaldo, when it serves out a confection of rice and jaggery known as thamukku nercha. It is an elegant and pretty building.

Karingachira Church Reviews & Ratings

  • The atmosphere is very peaceful and the people here are very helpful. Lots of parking space and the church has bus stops just outside it for easy access. Neat and spacious halls are available here for conducting functions, but they should be booked a few months in advance.

  • The first thing i like is the love of the world, but perhaps the most true love in the world


  • One of the oldest and historically significant Church in malankara

  • A very famous church near to Tripinithura, Ernakulam at Karingachira a metres away from Hill Place. A very old church attended different people of different beliefs. Very near to the main road and well maintained.
