Kerala - Kattoor - Saint Michael's Forane Church


The full name of this church is Saint Michael's Forane Roman Catholic Latin Church.
It’s one of the oldest churches around Alappuzha and situated in Kattoor, 9 km more to the north.

I passed by on my way to the ‘secret’ beach of Kattoor.
Because a lot of people went in, I also took a look. A mass for a marriage was about to begin.
The people present insisted that I went inside and took pictures. They seemed happy that a foreigner came to their church.

I had already noticed that when entering a church, Christian Indians take off their shoes at the entrance, just like when visiting a Hindu temple. The climate of course ensures that you can take your shoes off for a while.

Look in the WS for the colour splendor inside, colours mainly due to the traditional clothes of the visitors.
