    This church was founded in 1896 to "commemorate the miraculous escape of the saint from tempestuous seas through the intercession of Mar Elia". It was renovated in 1971.

    There are 5 daily public ferries that go to Kottayam between 7.30am and 5.30pm. The one I took was at around 10.30am but check the times where you're staying. The ferry trip takes around 2.5hrs and costs just Rs10 so it's an absolute bargain as it's a cheaper alternative than the Backwaters Tour.
