Atham procession at Tripunithura took almost two hours to finish. It was a hot day and I wanted to rest for a while. As I walked I came across this beautiful church. This is not the first time I am seeing this church.I have driven in front of this church several times when I was working and traveling from Kochi to Kottayam. But at that time I had no time or patience to stop and see.I was busy with my work, running around to achieve my business targets, training sales executives in the field and there were problems to be solved. I was always in a rush and had no time to spare for such fine things in life.In fact I thought the whole world was spinning on my shoulders.
I saw a vacant chair in the shade of the church. I went in,sat on the chair and looked around.It was a cute little church. The more I looked around the more I appreciated the finer aspects of this church. I understand that the local king in those days gave the land, money and craftsmen to build this church according to local taste, culture and tradition. The result is this lovely church. The modern churches are grand, imposing, spacious and a large amount of money is being spent to build them. But they are not beautiful in the real sense of the word.
The name of this church is ST.MARY’S SYRIAN JACOBITE CHURCH.
Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
