Brief history:


Christianity in Cheranmahadevi more than 300 year old. People had embraced the faith even before the coming of St. Francis Xavier. As a remembrance of it two inhabitants of Cheranmahadevi were invited for the flag hoisting during the annual feast of St. Francis Xavier at Kottar every year. About 300 year back, the Christians fearlessly faced the ferocious troups of Muslims and defeated the fannies through the intercession of Sr. Michael. The status of Sr. Michael in antique. Historically the princess of chera kingdom had visited this place and it is named after her.
