Yesterday on the 363rd anniversary of the Coonan Cross Oath, Nalloor Library visited the Coonan Kurishu Palli (Bent Cross Church) or known as the Holy Cross Church in the narrow lanes of of the old town of Mattancherry,Cochin, India.
The present cross does not appear to be 363 years old and appears not to be made of stone. It appears to be more like polished wood.
Does anyone know if the original cross was replaced, lost or even discarded over time. We would appreciate any information on the following historical artifact.
