The Saint Thomas Christians are a group of Christians from the Malabar coast (now Kerala) in South India, who follow Syriac Christianity. (Syro - Malabar & Syro - Malankara Catholic Churches, Malankara Syrian Orthodox [Jacobite] Church & Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, Marthoma Syrian Church, Church of the East, Independent Church of Thozhyoor, St. Thomas Evangelical Church)
The different groups and denominations within the St Thomas Christians together form the Nasrani people. Their tradition goes back to the very beginnings of first century Christian thought and the seven churches that are believed to have been established by St. Thomas the Apostle.
St. Thomas the Apostle, arrived at Muziris (Kerala) in AD 52, from Ezion-geber on the Red Sea. The apostle established seven churches in Malabar at Kodungalloor (Muziris), Paravur, Palayoor, Kokkamangalam, Niranam, Chayal (Nilackal) and Kollam.
