Cochin imbibes what was lost and forgotten with what must be gained and moved towards. It is the perfect synthesis of the past and the present, the wars won and lost, the cultures gained and cherished, and the heart and soul of Kerala that stays resolute regardless of whoever inhabits these shores. The commercial capital of Kerala, this emerging cosmopolitan city is widely regarded as a great indicator to the rising fortunes of God’s Own Country.
Once known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, this port city has held an important place on the Indian Peninsula for a long time. From cinema halls, shopping malls, and skyscrapers to beautiful monuments and a variety of linguistic and ethnic communities including Jews, Konkinis and Gujaratis, Kochi greets all its visitors with a multitude of colours and hues. Its unique geographical spot has ensured that it is among the most fascinating locations in the world. It is an indiscriminate mix of hilly areas, estuaries and backwaters, small islands, coastal cities like Fort Kochi and Mattancherry and plain terrain like that of the city of Ernakulam.
