The Attur Church, St. Lawrence Shrine

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.

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.

Read more about the Saint Lawrence Church of Attur in Wikipedia for history and interesting stories associated with it. This post is a part of my road trip from Bangalore. You may also be interested in the places to see in Karkala.
