Vypeenkotta Seminary
Reviewed 14 March 2014

The Vaipikkotta seminary was supposedly built in the 16th Century by the Portuguese. Adjacent to the ruins of the seminary is a Syrian Catholic Church. The present structure was rebuilt by the Portuguese, the original having been built around 1577. The church compound also displays the stone inscription originally part of the Vaipikkotta seminary. There is also the remains of the first printing press in India.

It is said that the both these monuments were severely damaged during the attack by Tipu Sultan. The Seminary is a protected monument under the Department of Archaeology, Govt. Of Kerala.
