History of Syrian Orthodox Church
Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church of India was established in A. D. 52, when Apostle St. Thomas traveled throughout Kerala, preaching Gospel. Though St. Thomas Christians (Syrian Christians) have moved to various denominations, the parental body – Indian Orthodox Church – maintained its independent nature and is headed by the Catholicos of the Apostolic Throne of St. Thomas, headquartered at Devalokam, Kottayam, India. The church follows Syrian liturgies and the traditions based on Indian culture. Read more
