Murals- Akaparambu Church

Shown in the video are the murals at Mor Sabor Mor Afroth Church near Akaparambu at Angamaly in the Ernakulam district of Kerala. The church is believed to have been built in AD 825 by Mor Sabor and Mor Afroth, two saintly men who reached Kerala along with a group of Syrian Christian immigrants to preach gospel.

The main altar has the paintings of Holy Virgin Mary, Mor Sabor and Mor Afroth. The church also has some miniature paintings of the Garden of Eden, Passion of our Lord, Ascension of our Lord, Dormition of Virgin Mary, consecration of bishops and burial of priests.

Mor Sobor and Mor Aphroth are believed to have established four churches in Kerala, others being at Kollam, Kayamkulam and Udayamperoor. The Akaparambu church is under the Angamaly Diocese of the Malankara Jacobite Syrian Church.
