The Malankara  Orthodox Syrian Church was founded by St. Thomas, one of the twelve  apostles of Jesus Christ, who came to India in A.D. 52.At  least from the fourth century the Indian Church entered into a close  relationship with the Persian or East Syrian Church. From the Persians,  the Indians inherited East Syrian language and liturgies and gradually  came to be known as Syrian Christians.

In the  seventeenth century the Church came to a relationship with the  Antiochene Church which again caused splits. As a result of this  relationship the Church received West Syrian liturgies and practices.
