Journey from darkness to light

Five decades ago Kurisumala was known as ‘Kondaketty Mala’. The history of Kurisumala can be traced back to 1940s. The humble farmers, George and Esthron resided in a cave on the summit and experienced the wonders and healing power of the Cross.

On 27th March 1957 Fr. John Baptist OCD, a Belgium missionary climbed the summit with a small group of parishners and established a wooden Cross. That marked the beginning of the pilgrimage.

The Cross on the summit has a history of its own. Due to bad weather the wooden Cross was partially damaged. There for a 24 feet (7m) high concrete Cross was established in its place.
