Puthenthope Trivandrum

Puthenthope is special in so many ways. The beautiful beach and the loving people always beckon to this magnificent Malabar Coast in Trivandrum, India. It is fascinating to know how did this unique community evolve, where did they come from to an uninhibited barren land, and why. We do not know many things, but we do know that some records at the St. Ignatius Loyola church (Parish) show that our ancestors were 'ettu veeti Pillamar' who came from Ambalapuzha after a big family conflict. Then they mixed with the Portuguese and Spanish, and hence carry all the Hispanic surnames like: Pereira, Fernandez, Gomez, Lopez, Miranda, Silva, D'silva, D'soza, D'cruz.

Our ancestors used so many Hispanic words, and the senior citizens still use them, though those words are not familiar in the regional language Malayalam. Angengo, one of the first Portuguese forts in India is just a couple of miles away confirmed the roots of Europeans. The two man made hills in this land show the earlier connections of the colonial warfare is just a plain history. But one thing is for sure, they were courageous enough to overcome any kind of obstacles wherever they lived. Big communities live in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Kuwait, Dubai, Sharjah, Muscat, Stuttgart, London, Toronto, Winnipeg, Victoria, Atlanta, Florida, W. Virginia and Melbourne. Wherever there are Indians or Malayalees, you may certainly find a person who has roots in Puthenthope.

This is a blessed land where so many priests, nuns, educators, public servants, and social workers were born. Late Fr. Zachariah Fernandez (1889-1919) is one of the pioneers. He was the first person from this land graduated from Madras University in 1917, who will always inspire every one of us, when it comes to academic success. Education, hard work, love and care for one another, and the community prayers had changed the face of this land significantly ever since. Puthenthope, a thriving land of 100% Catholics is an ideal Christian community in Trivandrum. Also, it is one of the oldest Parishes of the Catholic Diocese in Kerala India.

In short, it is a civilized catholic community lives peacefully for many centuries in the vicinity of Thiruvananthapuram Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala, India, spreads all over the world. And love binds us together, beyond the Oceans and the mountains.

Once you visit Puthenthope, you will always come back.
