Briefly About Us

The traditional story traces the origin of Puthenangady to the 16th century migration of Christians to Kottayam from places such as Nilackal, Thiruvalla, Athirampuzha, Pallom, Kollam, Chengannur,Thodupuzha and poonathra. It is believed that some of these migrations occurred as a result of the domination of the Portughese rite in the 16th century.This domination forced the Christians into an interpretation of Christianity foreign(unfamiliar)to their forefathers. One of the other reasons cited for this early migration is the destruction of crops by locusts and resultant poverty and the fear of a tribe of dacoits of Tamil origin called “Pandanmar”. The earliest migrants are believed to have settled in the “angadi” or the nucleus of the neighbourhood. It is not surprising that the “ angadi”consists of a street of houses built very close to each other toward off the attacks of the dacoits.
