Parumala Church 1/1 by Tripoto

Parumala Church

Parumala is an extremely popular - so popular that the old one had to be remodelled to fit in more people. It’s also the church where St. Gregorios, commonly called Parumala Thirumeni by most people in Kerala, is entombed. It’s a huge church and has been renovated recently, though many people feel its old charm has been lost. However, to really feel what this church is all about, go during the Ormaperunnal – like an annual feast or festival, held in early November every year. It’s a huge occasion and it will be jam-packed, but it’s a real celebration. But a lot of people will tell you that the old church was more charming.
