  • A must visit place if you are in kochi Clean streets , shops with different architecture one does not feel like in Kochi There is a Jewish Synagogue and a place turned into museum  more »
  • The Mattancherry Palace was a gift of the Portuguese. It is a two-storey building simple built in 1557 and shows possessions of the former ruling family and very beautiful murals inside.
