Arthunkal St. Andrew's Basilica is situating in a peaceful location. Everyone must go there at least one time.

The 7th century Church is born delightful to the eyes as well as calming to the soul. A beautiful shrine to spend time in the company of the almighty. Just a few minutes drive from the NH 66.

A pilgrimage centre of St. Sebastian. The church is situated at Arthungal, near Alleppey, about 20 kms away. It's a well known church and people from far off places visit the church.
