Parumala is a small stretch of land on the shores of the river Pampa. In the days of old, many brahmin families were living on this island which has an area of about 4 square miles. For various reasons, in course of time these families left the place. Parumala is a famous Christian Pilgrim Centre. The Tomb of Bishop Mar Baseleus who is known as 'Parumala Thirumeni' is at the Jacobite Church at this place. The new church is circular in design with an inner diameter of 39 meters. This circle is again divided into three segments by two chords of 16 meters length. The Eastern segment consists of the 3 altars and the vestry. The Western segment consists of the Veranda and the Natakasala.
