  • This is the livliest place on the fort kochi area. A beautiful kids play area with a park and lot of benches to relax. It is surrounded by hotels and eateries. Must visit in fort Kochi.

  • Kochi, the commercial capital of Kerala, the last port of Vasco Da Gama, where you will find synagogues, mosques, churches and temples side by side, is a place with a fascinating history. The huge cantilevered fishing net, the Chinese fishing nets, seen here is a legacy of its spellbinding past. The nets, set up on teak and bamboo poles, were brought by one of the first visitors to the Malabar Coast, the traders from the court of Kublai Khan. An ideal place to watch fishermen use these nets is the Vasco da Gama square, a narrow promenade along the beach. The square, which has numerous stalls serving fresh delicious seafood, tender coconut and so on, is also perfect for a nice, relaxed evening.
  • A large open area around the park and the Chinese fishing nets. Throughout the day, many make shift stalls dot the area selling souvenirs, snacks, drinks and food. Street vendors are friendly as you walk through the area. Many trees around the area provide good shade in the afternoon, and with the nice breeze from the sea, it becomes a nice place to hang out. Better still in the evening time or early night. Good get together place for friends for just sitting and watching the sea and enjoying the activities around. There is a particular stall manned by a young man selling fried tapioca (kappa) chips, which is very nice when spiced with chilly powder.
  • Had to wait for about 45 minutes before the guard (only staff I see there), to give up and say maybe, it will not open today. Mosquitoes were in plenty.
  • If someone is a very good history listener he/she can visit this place
  • It's really good one. Vasco Da Gammas tomb is here.. Ancient church here
