We stopped off to see this Church from our houseboat. It is a beautiful example of a large church. It has some beautiful features which are well worth the visit. It is also a very charming church and a peaceful place to think.

St. Mary's Forane Church is a very beautiful church and I was able to view the church on a rainy day and rain added more beauty to it. It is a big church and it is on the way to Tripunithura hill palace.
