About kochi

A prominent port city in South India, Cochin or Kochi is fondly known as the ‘Queen of Arabian Sea.' The city is a harmonious blend of modern city life and traditional charm. The main part of the city is a fast-growing metropolis, an evolving software hub of the country. As you leave the fast lanes of the city and move to the outskirts, you see a quaint village life where the people live in traditional houses, on the banks of the lakes and lagoons interspersing this district. \r\n\r\nThe massive Chinese fishing nets bringing up a hefty catch, from the bottom of the lagoon, is indeed a sight to behold. Mattancherry is a part of Kochi that showcases the hospitality of the people of this region. A visit to the Jewish District and the Jewish Synagogue is a must in Mattancherry. The Santa Cruz Basilica, Dutch Palace, and Kerala Folklore Museum are the other attractions, in Kochi. Refresh your spirit with a stroll along Cherai Beach and Marine Drive. Witness the bewitching beauty of Bolgatty Palace and relish the unique flavors of Kerala cuisine, while in Kochi.
