KOTTAYAM SIGHTSEEING

 

In Kottayam, there are several of Syrian Christians Churches,including Cheriyapalli and Valliapalli, about 3 km. north-west of the heart of the town. The former is famous for its beautiful murals and the latter for its Persian cross and Phalvi inscriptions. Today, Kottayam is also a centre for Indian rubber production. Its main street is busy and colourful. There is a regular ferry service (more than 10 boats a day) through the lagoons from Alappuzha to Kottayam - a fascinating alternative to the Kollam (Quilon) backwater trip. Here the scenery is more varied.
