Monte Mariano Church Farangipet Mangalore Karnataka
gru 2015 • Znajomi
In princely Mysore area the people branded British or European as red-papaya or Kenchpanrangi; kench means red parangi means Papaya fruit, because of their red skin colour. Whereas in identical situation Portuguese were called Farangi and the place where they stayed was known as Farangipet or Farangipete. Pet or Pete means commercial lane in town or city. There is a prominent area known as Farangipet to indicate foreigners’ colony or locality, close to Mangalore city.
The Europeans have a good tradition of first building a Church wherever they go and settle. When the Portuguese landed at Mangalore they built their very first house of worship ‘Monte Mariano Church’ in their camp which came to be recognized as Farangipet, to indicate foreigners’ dwellings. I was surprised to see a temple as well as mosque close by to this church, which shows the existence of social and secular life in the region. It looks that Farangipet is fast-growing locality coming within the jurisdiction of Pudu Grampanchayati. The moment I was nearing the place I could smell of fish, as I experienced at Velangani in Tamil Nadu. It appears that fish are sold at cheap rate here.
The word ‘convent’ in local slang pronunciation has become Coventh. If we look at certain Revenue records we can see the owner’s name of the plot as “Monthu Mary Cuvent Devaru”. ‘Devaru’ means god. Monte Mariano Church in Farangipet is an ancient Catholic denomination, which include church, friary, monastery and institution. It is situated on top of the hillock on the north bank of Netravathi River. The famous festival known as Monthi coinciding with native festival of Mary is celebrated every year.
Portuguese conquered Goa in 1510 and founded their empire in India. During 1526 they established three churches around Mangalore namely Lady of Rosary at Bolar (now Cathedral), Our Lady of Mercy at Ullal (Panir) and St Francis of Assisi at Farangipet. It was used as mass to Portuguese traders who arrived via river route and exit from, there.
River Netravathi is always flooded or flows in full swing. It will be pleasing to see breathtaking view of this mighty river with lush greenery on the hillock at the background of the monastery. The devotees come here from far off places to offer prayers.
During 1763 Tippu Sultan after capturing Mangalore had kept Catholics as captives in Srirangapatna. Tippu while destroying all churches in Mangalore miraculously spared Monte Mariano monastery.
Monte Mariano literally means ‘Mount Mary’, which name has occupied special place in the annals of Catholics history of Mangalore. It is also popular as 'Saant Mari', (vhoddlem fest) or the feast of the Friary, which in reality is the feast of St Francis of Assisi. Mangalore Christians consider Vodlem Fest as special occasion that starts with Saant Mari of Farangipet.
Monthi fest is an annual feast of the church coming during harvest season which coincides with Sankranti in Karnataka and Andhra, Pongal in Tamil Nadu and Onam in Kerala.
Mother Mary’s statue at the entrance of the main gate is beautiful. I was told that this statue of Infant Mary in this chapel is from Italy, brought and donated by Nelyadi family. The wooden carved statue of St. Francis of Assisi is said to be of 480 years old. I saw many non-Christians offering prayers here. The Commerce School here is catering to the needs of poor dropout girls in providing training in tailoring and computer education. It seems there is play home also.
Another interesting tourist attraction is the wonderful Sunrise at Netravathi River.
Mangalore is a cosmopolitan city where there is no problem for food and accommodation matching One’s budget.

Monte Mariano Church at Farangipet in Mangalore, is a church where the Roman Catholic festival Monti Fest was initiated by Joachim Miranda, a Goan Catholic priest at Farangipet in 1763. Though Tippu Sultan destroyed the churches of Canara, he spared Monte Mariano Church in deference to the friendship of his father Hyder Ali with Father Miranda.This Church is situated on the banks of river Nethravathi.
