Churches of Kerala

Majority Churches of Kerala follow the tradition of Syrian Christians known as Saint Thomas Christians also called Syrian Christians of India, Nasrani or Malankara Nasrani or Nasrani Mappila. Remaining are Latin Catholics and a minority of Protestant Christians.

St. Thomas, disciple of Lord Jesus Christ, is claimed to have visited India and founded eight churches in Kerala, the foremost being St. Mary's Church [1] at a place called Niranam near Thiruvalla. It is a Historical Monument today and many ancient relics are still preserved in the museum there.
