                                          St Andrew S Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha Overview

                                          One such major pilgrim centre in Kerala is St. Andrew's Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha. Located in the small seaside village of Arthunkal, this beautiful shrine is a revered attraction among travellers visiting Alappuzha district. Built in the late 16th century, St. Andrew's Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha has an enticing history. The Portuguese missionaries, who came to Kerala after the arrival of Vasco da Gamma, used wood and coconut leaves to construct a church in November, 1581. By the end of the month, the wooden church was consecrated in the name of Andrew the Apostle. The foundation stone for the present new church, which is the first Parish of the Diocese of Alleppey, was not laid until the early 20th century. Officially known as Arthunkal St. Andrew's Forane Church, the new church avatar was a sight to behold with its enchanting gold altar and captivating statue of St. Sebastian. St. Andrew's Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha was elevated to the status of Basilica on 9 July, 2010 and was thus, renounced as the first Basilica in the Diocese of Alleppey. Although this sacred shrine is named after St. Andrew, it gained fame and recognition across the world for St. Sebastian's feast. Called as Arthunkal Perunnal, the Feast of St. Sebastian is a grand festival celebrated at St. Andrew's Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha every year. Extending from 10th of January to the 27th, this 11-day long event attracts more than two lakh pilgrims from different parts of the world. On 18th of January, the glorious statue of St. Sebastian is carried out and kept in front of the church altar. The main day of the festival is 20th of January, when St. Sebastian's statue is taken from the church to the beach and back, in a grand procession. Another small feast, Ettam Perunnal or Octave, is celebrated on the 8th day after the main feast. Legend has it that Arthunkal Veluthachan, who installed St. Sebastian's statue in the church, and Sabarimala Ayyappan were brothers. Thus, Hindu pilgrims returning from Sabarimala Temple, the world's largest pilgrimage site, also throng the church during the celebrated Feast of St. Sebastian. Bringing people of different faiths together under one roof, St. Andrew's Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha sets an impeccable example of cultural and religious harmony.St Andrew s Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha kerala - Travel Guide to St Andrew s Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha kerala with all information about St Andrew s Basilica Arthunkal Alappuzha History, Best time to visit, how to reach.
