Edathua Church Travel

The Edathua Church was established in 1810 on the banks of the river Pamba. It was modeled after the medieval churches of Europe. The patron saint of this church is St. George. This Catholic saint is known for being especially good at helping to heal mental disorders and other ailments.

As a result, numerous people from all of South India make the pilgrimage to this church to seek the blessing of St. George. Every year, an enormous festival is held to celebrate St. George.

A remarkable feast of gluttonous proportions is a large part of the festival that lasts for eleven days. A gold statue of St George is at the centre of attention. It is carried out in a grand procession, and then placed on a dais at the center of the Basilica. It remains there throughout duration of the feast.
