Kothamangalam Tailormade Holidays

Kothamangalam is a beautiful town in the mountains of Kerala, India. Kothamangalam is now one of the most important pilgrim centres of Kerala, with a dozen churches, half a dozen ancient temples and a few sacred mosques. The place is spiritually glorified by the ancient Thrikariyoor Temple, mosques, St. George Cathedral, St. Mary’s Church (Marthamariyam Valiyapally) and Mar Thoma Cheria Pally.

Kothamangalam was a place of prominence during the rule of the First Chera Dynasty, the dynasty that ruled Kerala from around 300 BC to the first millennium. Cheras were also known as Kothai.

The Siva temple at Thrikkariyoor dates back to the early centuries of first millennium. Thrikkariyoor also has one of the earliest Brahmin settlements in Kerala. Chelamalai, near Bhoothathankettu in Kothamangalam is regarded by some as the Summer Palace of Cheras. Stone ruins are found there and Nanangadis (Burial urns) have been excavated from the place.

Egyptian coins of 7th and 8th century were recovered from places near Kothamangalam in 1962. The ancient trade route to Madhurai was also through Kothamangalam.

St. Thomas, the apostle of Jesus Christ, who introduced Christianity to India, is believed to have visited Kothamangalam and converted several families to the Christian faith. St Marys Church (popularly called 'Valiyapally') belonging to the Jacobite Syrian Church, is believed to have been established during 4th century AD by a few Syrian families in the area.
