Cochin, India, a Historical place



About Cochin

Popularly known as 'the Queen of Arabia', Kochi or Cochin is the commercial capital of Kerala. Boasting of being one of the finest natural harbors in the world, Kochi is among the most developed cities in India. Fort Kochi is one of the main attractions of the Kochi. Fort Kochi is famous for its quaint beaches and architectural constructions. Being a place where most European countries ruled pre-independence of India, the European style in everything is pretty evident in this area and that makes Fort Kochi unique and different from all other places from Kerala. With mesmerizing backwaters and picturesque view of the Arabian Sea, Fort Kochi is a complete fun filled location to spend days at. Cantilevered Chinese fishnets can only be seen in this area. Marine drive is a walkway created for public alongside the Vembanad Lake. It is a place where one can observe the brilliant view of sunup and sundown. It is a common meeting place for the locals and is usually crowded. Jew Town is another important place to visit in Kochi. It is still the hub of spice trade in Kochi. The Pardesi Synagogue in the Jew Town is still used by people and is listed as one of the oldest Synagogues that are active in the Commonwealth. Mattanchery is another place that can give a lot of traces of the foreign culture of the region. The Dutch Palace at Mattanchery built by the Portuguese boasts of a great collection of mural painting. Bolgatty Palace, Santa Cruz Basilica, Willingdon Island, and Cherai Beach are some of the places than can be great vacation locations in Kochi.

Cochin, India

6 Days Trip
Stayed at

Wonderful place. Amazing people. The beach in Varkala is really quiet and beautiful. The boat ride in Alleppey is a must. Fort Kochi is best explored by foot. Kozhikode is famous for Biryani.


Visit Paragon restaurant in Kozhikode. Odayam beach in Varkala is far less crowded than the cliff beach.
