On the banks of the Hemavathi River, close to Hassan, where a community had stood, the church was built. The Gorur dam, which floods the Hemavathi Reservoir, was built when the government decided that better uses needed to be made of the flowing river water. Villages were relocated upstream, as was inevitable with any dam. Similar to other settlements, the Rustics in this one were moved to the neighbouring villages, but the church remained. It endured the wrath of the monsoons and the test of time without moving. It is difficult to contain your amazement as these walls, which were erected more than 200 years ago, withstand the damage caused by flooding and dam waters that have been destroying the church for the past 25 years.
