Away from the crowd...amidst a jungle...under the shadows...u can worship Nagaraja, Nagayakshi and Nagathans. A temple totally devoted to Snake. Recall how our ancestors love nature and all the creatures in the universe. This place is an example of our nature loving predecessors.

I feel very comfortable around the premises even when in huge rush. The divinity and spirit of church is very mentionable. The feast is on Jan. And is a must visit for historian catholics. It has a lot of history to tell.
