Greetings from Ss. Gervasis and Prothasis Forane church kothanalloor, one of the most ancient church in India,established in 826AD.It was founded in the name of Mary,mother of Jesus Christ. In the course of history it was dedicated to the patronage of kandeesangal.
At present this Church is a well known pilgrim centre and is internationally reputed for the "twins' meet", a unique and a special event conducted on 19th June every year in connection with the feast of the kandeesangal( Ss. Gervasis & Prothasis).We expect this year(2017) 1500 twins for the 11th great gathering.
Very many pilgrims from different parts of the world come to visit this holy ancient church. Among the pilgrims a number of couples who have no children, come here to pray for the same, especially for twins. Many of them after getting children visit here again to give thanks and to witness the miracle.
We cordially invite every faithful to visit this historical and holy place and to have blessings from God through the mediatorship of the martyrs,the twin saints Gervasis & Prothasis known as kandeesangal.
