I've seen the inside of that there church many times. And it has seen me in there more times than i can remember. Baptized & married there, recently had my child's baptism there as well.  Cheppad's on my mind today. It may seem like just a small little stop on the Alleppey - Kayamkulam highway, but it really is so much more. I'm yet to explore the place to its entirety - that's the sort of mysteriousness it holds for me. The road seen in this picture has about 3 churches and temples each, along a stretch of about 3 kms. and a school that's close to a century old (no kidding). And thats just the immediate vicinity of this picture. However, there's not a lot about this place online, so maybe someday i can help put up more useful info on Cheppad.
