CSI Church, Valparai

CSI Church, Valparai
The first time when I landed on Valparai (near Coimbatore) was a day prior to Christmas and the CSI Church in the heart of the town, was illuminated in colorful bulbs and decorated Christmas trees. We just passed the church in thought to return next day, since the sight catch-up with the festival mood and the shops were all doing bright business, selling stars and decorative item hanging around, the main road stretched in festival spirit.
                                                                         
We stayed at a house adjoined to our relative’s there, supported to take us to the church and shopping but we couldn't makeup next day as we returned to the town too late at night after visiting a faraway place into  Kerala. We could have made a visit other day, but we lost somewhere our interest due to visiting other places or various attractions.

The photos here are captured during my second visit to Valparai and we haven’t visited the church this time as well. But I was glad to capture some glimpse of this pretty white church constructed in shape of pyramid and three storeys with balconies and a clock on the top floor.

You could have captured the photo of the Church in the night-time, when it was decorated with the lights, no?

The sepia effect for this image is nice.

The church is so lovely and has a unique architecture with Asian characters. I always thought all churches should have European looks until I went to China and saw the mosques that looked like Chinese Palaces!
