The largest and the most stunning looking church in Cochin.

There are two churches here, one the small and old one and the second the large and new one. Both are very pleasing for the eyes but the new one is stunning.

It is massive, with statues and fountains and large domes and curved doors are seen from outside, while the insides are beautifully done in golden colour. There are many beautifuk paintings anf sculptures from Bible too. The floor is done in shiny granite with a massive dome roof on top.

Even if you are a non religious person, it is recommended to visit the church. It will not disappoint you for sure.
