Malayatoor Church is situated atop the 609 m high Malayatoor Hill. The church is dedicated to St. Thomas, who is believed to have prayed at this shrine. One of the most important Christian pilgrim centres in Kerala. According to a local belief St. Thomas is regarded as having established about seven and a half churches in Kerala, half denoting a smaller church. These seven churches were established at Kodungallur, Palayur, Paravur, Kokomangalam, Niranam, Chayal, and Kollam.

The Malayattoor Church and the Tiruvamcode Church in the Kanyakumari area of Tamilnadu are considered to be the half church. But some believe that the Malayattoor Church is one of the major churches built by St. Thomas and they argue that the churches at Kokomanagalam and Paravur must be regarded as half ones. At Malayatoor, the first Sunday after Easter is careful to be a very significant day. Pilgrims, chanting the name of the Apostle ('Ponninkurisumala Muthappa'), climb Kurisumudi, the steep hill to trip the holy shrine.

    "Awesome 5 Star Service" It was a 5 star service accorded to us with all the bells and whistles though we opted to stay in 3-4 Star hotels. An extremely professional and personalized service that attended to all the minute details and even our smallest requirements. To our surprise, Kamlesh, the owner himself received us on arrival, accompanied us to Kochi and saw us off on our departure. ...more
