This basilica is quite extraordinary! You must stop in if you are in the vicinity to admire the architecture as well as the interior paintings. The church is presently (March 2017) undergoing extensive renovation which should be concluded in a month. I had no idea that Christianity was so prevalent in southern India until my recent visit to Kochi.

We visited St. Andrew's Basilica is just on our way back from Alleppey to Kochi. There was a renovation work going on at the time we did visit it, but the beauty and charm of this old basilica is an experience in itself. Do visit and feel the magnificent altar, the statues, and murals.

This place is located on main highway between Kochi and Alleppey. Can be easily group up with visit to Marari Beach. The main church has some renovation going on. We visited old church which is situation just behind it. Architecture wise it is one of best churches in Kerala. Very calm and serene atmosphere make it must visit place.

One must go inside the church to see how beautiful it is. Side view of the Church is like the Scottish Castles.

St. Andrew Basilica located on the shores of Arabian sea near Alappuzha is a 16th Century church established by the Portuguese which was renovated and now it is a popular pilgrim center. The architectural excellence of the church and the tranquil atmosphere surrounding the church is worth mentioning. It is one of the 3 Roman Catholic Latin Basilica's in Kerala.

Away from the crowd...amidst a jungle...under the shadows...u can worship Nagaraja, Nagayakshi and Nagathans. A temple totally devoted to Snake. Recall how our ancestors love nature and all the creatures in the universe. This place is an example of our nature loving predecessors.
