Boy at Mar Thoma Church
Boy at Mar Thoma Church

The boy at Mar Thomagiri St.Mary Orthodox Church at Magazine Road St. Thomas Mount. As I took a quick snap, he became shy and ran to his mother. Even after being goaded by the mother he was hesitant to appear again. I am happy I got it the first time.

This church comes under the Madras Diocese of the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church – mostly patronised by Malayalees. The crosses in their church are also quite ornate similar to the stone cross at St.Thomas Mount (Parangi malai, in local parlance)
