St Yeldho Mar Baselious
- Dear all,
In addition to the links given by the moderators on
the life and trials of Mor Baselious Yeldho, i would
like to add a bit more.
There is a tomb nearby the present day Pallivasal
generating station of KSEB. It is believed by the
natives of that place, that the tomb is that of a monk
who had come along with Bava. This monk was killed by
a wild animal during the night and Bava had cremated
the body by the side of a Banyan tree.
It is believed by the natives of Pallivasal that Bava
had entrusted the banyan tree to protect the tomb, and
had blessed the tree.
The huge tree which is still there is having seven
types of leaves with different shapes. For all these
seven types of leaves, there is seven different shades
The tomb which is also there is respected by all the
community in Pallivasal. The tomb doesnt belong to any
particular community. On sundays christians offer
prayers, on fridays muslims, and on mondays hindus.
