Faith Journeys: India

He founded seven churches on the Kerala coast and India became one of the first countries to have Christian faith. 15th century onwards, Europeans visiting India became regular feature followed by colonization. Some of the churches of colonial India are comparable to the best in the world. Churches in India show distinct architectural designs.
