St. Thomas Mar Thoma Church, Kozhencherry

This is the church my mom grew up in. She went to the small building on the left. Later, the gargantuan church on the right came to be, with the grand entrance below. I have always admired the architectural beauty of the building.

Here’s a peek inside the smaller building, which according to the stone-carved inscription below, was built in 1893. I went to a Wednesday communion service here years ago.
