Brief History:

In 1873 when Vembar used to be a big Mission Station with 25 substations, Nagalapuram was one among them. Fr. Leon Besses who wrote the Madurai Mission History notes that a church existed at Nagalapuram 30 years earlier. Among the 60 villages of this parish, Ayan Pommaiahpuram, Marthandampatti, Vilathikulam (1892) Kathalampatti (1892), Vowalthotti (1982), Kizhakaranthai and Melakaranthai have been very ancient missions.
