At the Indian orthodox' second largest pilgrim centre in the world after parumala, St Mary's manarkad, kottayam, kerala, India. As per Indian Supreme court's many rulings time and again, this church belongs to Indian orthodox church at devalokam, Kottayam, the only Orthodox Church recognised by it. At the opportune moment it will change hands.
Presently the church is being managed well by jacobites (our sister church from Syria, the Syrian orthodox church in exile, administering out of Damascus) for the Orthodox church out of great emotional attachment, without any headaches !
Thanks to jacobites for doing a good job in helping preserve a great spiritual and cultural heritage for the oldest Christians of the world !!
