Murals- Paliyekkara Church

The video features the murals of Paliyekkara St. George Orthodox Church, an important centre of worship located at Thiruvalla in the Pathanamthitta district. The paintings are found at the altar of the church and are exceptional for their colours and composition. Baby Jesus, St. George and the Dragon and crucifixion are some of the portrayals.

The Church, considered to have been built in the beginning of the 19th century, is also noted for its architecture, a blend of the Kerala and European styles.
