CSI Church

To the eastern side of the Mananchira Square, is the CSI church built by the Basel missionaries in 1842. The church, the biggest Basel Mission church in Malabar, was built eight years after the missionaries came to India.

The architecture is a combination of European and Kerala styles. On top of the arched entrance porch, there is a three-tiered turret. The church has a main hall and a cluster of rooms to the back and the sides. These are roofed with tiles.

The church also has a pipe organ which was a gift from the St. Ayden’s Church in Cheltenham, England. No other church in Kerala can boast of such an organ.
