Dispatches from Easter in Kochi Photography Workshop

Good Friday Procession

Good Friday procession at Coonan Kurisu Palli, the Church of the Bent Cross, in Kochi, Kerala. Also know as the Church of Our Lady of Life, the church is at the heart of the town’s Syrian Christian community.

This photo was taken shortly before that of Lord Murugan’s devotee, posted yesterday. It is one of the peculiarities of Kochi that Roman Catholics, Syrian Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus have long peacefully coexisted here.
