“A special temple for Snakes... epics tell it is a part of the Khandava vana”
Reviewed 28 April 2016

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.

“Superb St. Andrew's Basilica !!!”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 via mobile

I went to Arthunkal on 03rd March 2016, the Basilica was absolutely blissful, went inside and sat in silence to enjoy the bliss and absorb the positive vibrations over there, located in the heart of the city and very easily accessible from all parts of Alappuzha.

Must visit for all age groups when we are in Alappuzha and its surroundings, I took some fabulous photos to cherish.

Bon Voyage ...
Amen !!!

“Historical Pilgrimage Church”
Reviewed 29 January 2016

The Church was build in the 16th century and is dedicated to a Martyr Saint - St Sebastian. The church has the Statue of St Sebastian which was bought in during this period and there is great devotion to St Sebastian for healing. It was raised to the Status of a Basilica in the year 2010. A place of spiritual devotion !
