Have you ever been to Cochin aka Kochi in God’s own country Kerala? You will be met with a large expanse of backwaters, fishermen with Chinese fishing nets, Portuguese-style houses, and the crumbling remains of the bygone days. The beautiful scene seems to be straight out of a romantic novel.
The region – with its rich culture, celebrates the nuances of life with full enthusiasm. Be it the harvest festival of Onam, Vishu – the New Year’s Day, or the temple festival of Thrissur Pooram.
Kochi, often called the Queen of the Arabian Sea, has been one of the major spice trading ports since the 14th century. Cochin spices such as ginger, cloves, cardamom, turmeric, and pepper, also known as black gold, are some of the goodies that one must bring back while on a holiday to this traveller’s paradise. You must also visit Fort Kochi beach, the 400-year-old Jewish synagogue, or St. Francis Church – giving you a glimpse of the era gone by.
