About Vallarpadam Church, Kochi
Built by the Portuguese in 1524, this church is dedicated to the Holy Mary of Vallarpadam, also known as 'Vallarapadath Amma'. The first church was destroyed by floods, so they built this one in 1676. Locals claim the patron saint of the church is responsible for saving the lives of her followers from storms. From September 16 to 24, the church's festival, the Feast of Vallarpadathamma, draws thousands of pilgrims, making it one of the most important Christian pilgrimage sites in India. It is a beautiful white building standing on a serene island. When you visit, ask the locals about the miracle of May 1752.
