"Churches of Kottayam" Kottayam by Willettsworld

Kottayam Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 46 photos

Kottayam is located about 30km (18 miles) east of Alappuzha (Alleppey), across Vembanad Lake, which is part of the Backwaters - a labyrinth of interconnected canals, rivers and lakes. I came here for a day trip on a public ferry from Alleppey in order to visit a couple of nice 16th century Syrian Orthodox churches, one which features some beautiful wall paintings around the main altar. There are also a few other, newer churches in the town plus a nice temple.
