I would like to share about the ancient and famous Puthuppally Church. I have visited this church many times, usually once in every year.
This ancient church renowned all over the world as “Puthuppally Pally” or “Puthuppally Valiyapally” situated on the eastern bank of the rivulet Kodoorar and beside the Puthuppally-Changancherry road about a kilometer away from Puthuppally junction was rebuilt, expanded or renovated five times during the past four and half centuries of its existence. Thousands visit the church throughout the year and particularly during the feast of St.George, including the 10 days preceding and succeeding it.
This church is famous for its traditions. The “Puthuppaly Perunnal” , annual feast of the patron saint, St. George being celebrated every year, is attended by hundred thousands of devotees belonging to various religions. This is a fine example of communal and religious harmony among people of this area.
This Church is famous for the powerful intercession of the patron saint, St. George and many people is believed to have received favours from God Almighty due to his intercession. It is firmly believed that Sahada (saint) protects those who take refuge, from serpents, ailments, and all kinds of dangers and troubles.
