We drove to the outskirts of Karkala to visit the Attur Church or the St. Lawrence Shrine. Thanks to my friend Lawrence for showing the way. The Attur Church dates back to 1759 and known for many miracles.
Saint Lawrence Church, Attur
The Church has seen many destructions and renovations in several centuries. In the year 1900, Rev. Fr. Frank built the present Church and it still looks so fresh and new.
I posted a selfie with this church as a background and my friends thought I was travelling abroad. Well we have beautiful churches in India as well. Every explorer to south India should visit this Church, a marvel.
