Journey through Muthukulithurai
Following the footprints of St. Francis Xavier, I travelled along our coastal villages inhabited by Paravars. There were many interesting things to be noticed – the sea shells, fishing, pearl
harvesting etc. One of the prominent feature that would be noticed by everyone is the churches in these regions and their architecture.
I am listing down the churches that grab our attention:
Kanyakumari – Alangara upakara matha aalayam (Our lady of ransom church)
Perumanal – Our Lady of Visitation
Vadakangulam – Holy Family Church
Kooduthalai – St. Thomas church
Periyathalai – St. John’s & St. Stephen’s church
Alanthalai – St. Peter & St. Paul church
Of course I missed out few places such as Vaippar, Kamudhi, Idinthakarai etc. due to lack of time. I am sure I will visit them the next time.
