A blending of several small villages on the southwestern coast created the current incarnation of Kochi (or Cochin), where sunset strolls, sampling fresh fish from seaside vendors and boat rides through the islands just offshore top visitors' to-do lists. Art centers showcase the traditional dance, Kathakali. European influences are seen in the 16th-century Portuguese-built churches and forts, while the mark of early Chinese traders is visible in the unusual fishing nets dotting the shoreline.

The Church is named as Vallarpadam Madha (Mother) Church. It is a place of National Importance. Religious minded people can symbolically sweep the courtyard signifying one being a Adima (slave) to Mother Mary. (Brooms are kept handy for this purpose)

The Edapally Church complex comprises mainly of the old and new holy churches Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ and St. George. The ancient church is said to date back 14 centuries! St. George is one of the most revered saints in Christianity. As the legend goes, he was a roman soldier and military officer in the roman army. Emperor Diocletian ordered his death after he did not renounce his Christian faith and thus became a Christian martyr. Lakhs of people around the world claim St. George as their patron and St. George's Day is celebrated every year throughout the world.
The inside of both the old and new churches are awe inspiring. The sculptures, paintings behind the altar, the angels inside of the churches etc. though breathtaking create a calm and pious surroundings where one can pray and seek the blessings of Mother Mary, Infant Jesus and St. George in peace.
Said to be the biggest pilgrim centre of St. George in Asia it really is a blessed place.

This place has an impressive array of historic things that are displayed. Unfortunately the displays are very crammed and dusty and could be maintained better. Its though a non government supported location and the entrance fees and donations go towards the preservation of this place.Thank you for reviewing us

Very neat and clean surrounding with a climate controlled interior. Good place to shop. The movies also a good experience and well maintained. Food court is very elaborate and can accommodate huge volumes of people pouring in.Has almost all brand outlets and enough parking space. Well constructed as well. Though it's huge and biggest shopping mall in India. It gets pretty crowded during weekends and especially during festive seasons.

We went to the show last night and I am glad I experienced and learned about Kathakali as an art form but found it a little tedious. We arrived early to witness the application of the makeup which took in excess of an hour and really 15-20 minutes would have been ample. The application was very detailed and a skill that along with all the other facets of the art form takes years to perfect. The eye communication along with the hand movements, (which is how they tell a story) is very detailed and after seeing the performance you can understand why it takes years to learn. We were given an explanation of how the eyes express the different emotions and shown all the hand movements and what they mean. We also had an overview of the story but really you have no idea whats really going on. Despite that you can not try to understand but just appreciate the makeup, costumes, the detail and the skill of the actors. The centre provides nice hand held fans to use as it gets very hot in the venue so is a nice gesture. The venue is quaint and wooden inside- very local which is cool. Definately worth attending but wouldnt bother with so much time to see the application of the makeup.

I went here twice and both times the service was extremely slow. Had to ask for menus after at least 10 minutes and waited another 10 minutes to place an order. The staff was very friendly but not attentive. A cool place with average food but good drinks.

Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica was built by the Portuguese in Fort Cochin, one of the oldest Christian / Catholic Churches in India, which is owned and administered by the Diocese of Cochin, open to all, when no religious and liturgical services are in progress. Most welcome to all, who love history and Gothic Architectural attractions in the City of Cochin, Kerala.
