      320th Dukhrono of St. Baselios Yeldho Bava

      On 2nd October 2005, the Syrian Church observes the 320th Dukhrono
      of Maphryono St. Baselios Yeldho who is entombed at the Kothamangalm

      The holy father was born at Karakosh near Mosul in Iraq where
      Marthsmooni and her 7 children suffered Martyrdom. He became a monk
      in Mor Bahnan monastery in Mosul. The saint came to India via Basra
      to Surat, after consecration as Maphrian (Catholicos / Maphriyono)
      by the Patriarch Mor Ignatius Abdul Messiah I, arriving at
      Thalassery in North Kerala, then by hill route to Kothamangalam in
      AD 1685 at the request of Marthoma II of Malankara Church. He
      reached Kothamangalam Cheriapalli along with Mor Ivanios, guided by
      a Hindu gentleman whose descendants guide the procession of the
      festival held in his memory every year. The saintly father expired
      in the Malaylam month of Kanni 19 and was entombed in the sanctuary
      of MarThoma CheriaPally, Kothamangalam. In 1987 his name was
      included in the 5th Tubden (Holy diptych) as per the Patriarchal

      Biography of the Holy father
