Mulanthuruthy is a small town in Ernakulam District of Kerala. It is about 21 km south-east of Ernakulam and 8 km east of Tripunithura.
 The history of Mulanthuruthy, a little village in the former Princely State of Cochin, in the early centuries of the Christian era, is obscure. Geologists are of the view that when the western part of Mulanthuruthy, was not yet formed by the mud and sand brought down by the periyar, the waves of the Arabian Sea washed the shore of this village . At that time, this village was a “Thuruthu” (Island) surrounded by “Mula” trees (Bamboo) and the name “Mulanthuruthy” was derived from that. Gradualy,  the sea receded surrendering large areas, now known as, Ernakulam, Mattanchery, Vypeen etc.

The Land of mulanthurthy is blessed with great natural beauty with paddy fields,Rubber plantations,small rivers with  green effect.

This place is ideal for leisure activities. It was once know as the ” Nellara of Cochin Dynasty- because of the paddy cultivation there. It is an ideal place for hanging around. if you build a friend ship with the localites you can even try your hand in fishing. It is located 6 km away from mulanthuruthy town.

Christianity flurished in this village, immediatly after the arrival of St. Thomas. This has remained a centre of Christian culture ever since the Church was founded and established in the 11th Century A.D, under the Holy Apostolic See of Antioch, and the Church was consecrated on 3rd Karkkidakkam (July),in between 1100-1125 A.D. The Church was modified in the 16th Century A.D. The carvings on the main door of the Church, made of granite, on which is inscribed in Syrian script, read as ʹʹthe door of the Mar Thoman Church was re-erected on 9th Thulam 1575 A.D.ʹʹ It is one of the ancient Churches in Kerala.
