Pulinkunnu Church in the Alappuzha district is one of these rare churches that carry an added beauty

All places of worship have something special about them. They are centres where people come to pray and seek the blessings of the god they believe in. However, there are some places of worship that seem to emanate some extra divinity. They will have something extraordinary about them, be it their architecture, their location or the very ambience. Pulikunnu Church in the Alappuzha district is one of these rare churches that carry an added beauty. No wonder it is visited by devotees from different parts of India. 

Located at Kuttanad in the Alappuzha district along the banks of river Pampa, Pulinkunnu Church is also known as the St. Mary’s Forane Church. The location of the church itself is truly spectacular and a sight to behold. The church is constructed following the Portuguese architectural genre, which is rare to find these days. Built-in 1557 CE, the church is dedicated to the Holy Mother.

The tranquil backwaters, the picturesque landscape adorned with coconut palms, and greenery all around – there are very few churches in the world that give you such a feel. The church is today not just a place of worship, but also one of the most important tourist attractions in Alappuzha owing to its captivating natural beauty.
