About malayattoor perunnal
Malayattoor Perunnal is a fascinating church festival celebrated in the Malayattor Church in Ernakulam in the month of April. It is held on the first Sunday after Easter. Pilgrims who participate in this festival chant the holy name of the Apostle “Ponninkurishu Mutthappa” and climb a steep hill called Kurishumudi and visit the shrine. It is believed that St. Thomas visited this site and prayed here for a long time. One can see a life-size statue of St. Thomas, a golden cross and also footprints believed to be that of St. Thomas.
