Its quaint and friendly charm is addictive, along with a rich and vibrant cultural scene. Here also lies the chief seat of the Malankara Marthoma Syrian Church, along with the historic Paliakara St. George Orthodox Church, famous for its exotic murals. This is also home to the majestic Sree Vallaba Temple, the only one of its kind in the State to have Kathakali performed as a ritual offering every night.
