Photographer's Note

Kottayam Cheriyapally (small church) is one of the oldest churches in Kerala. Built and consecrated by Portuguese in 1579, the church is well preserved. The architectural style of the church is European, with galleries, pillars, cornices and pediments. The walls are adorned with beautiful murals made in oriented and western styles on bibical and non bibical thems. The mural paints on the wall depict various Christian stories and are as old as the church itself. The church houses some exquisite vegetable dye paintings on the ceilings and walls depicting biblical and non-biblical themes.
