Sacred Heart Tours
Malayattoor is one of the more important pilgrimage destinations of Saint Thomas Christians.
Legend has it that Saint Thomas while walking through the area met hostile locals and was forced to flee to the mountain nearby to pray.
Deep in prayer he touched a rock which caused blood to pour forth and he left his footprints behind in the stone.
There is a similar legend that whilst praying and making the sign of the cross a miraculous golden cross appeared on the mountain.
