Most of the believers of Marthoma Church settle in this area and they accomplish very significant role in our Church. Moreover Nilackal is a historical place where the one of the seven Churches were formed.

Our late Metropolitan Dr.Thomas Mar Athanasius Suffragan Metropolitan had a great vision about this diocese. Tirumeni realized the requirement of new diocese, all clergy and lay men were gathered together under the leadership of Tirumeni and decided to form Ranny - Nilackal Diocese.

Our Metropolitan Dr. Philipose Mar Chrysostom was the first episcopa of this diocese. Tirumeni led this diocese for seven and half years. Kalamannilachen Memorial Hall, B.Ed College, CARD, Malayalapuzha De-Addiction Center etc. were started during his era.
