Chavara Bhavan – the ancestral home of St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara

Chavara Bhavan is the ancestral home of St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara. This shrine is located in the idyllic village of Kainakary, which is completely surrounded by water. Therefore, the only way to reach Chavara Bhavan is by a boat. It is now a holy shrine and spiritual resort where thousands of devotees gather for prayer, receive favours and feel amply gratified. Here, a 250 year old historically important beacon of light is preserved intact in its original and primitive form.
