Mother of God Church, Kozhikode

Located close to Beach Road in Kozhikode, the Mother of God Church built in the Roman architectural style dates back to 1513 AD and is the only one of its kind in Kerala. A 200-year-old portrait of St. Mary adorns the wall of the 18th-century Gothic cathedral built by Christian missionaries.
Locally known as Valiyapalli, it is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic congregation in Malabar. Designed by Italian architects, this ancient shrine is a tribute to Italian know-how and the skill of Indian craftsmen.
