Cochin set on a cluster of islands and narrow peninsulas,
the port city of Cochin (Kochi) (Queen of Arabia) reflects
the eclecticism of Kerala perfectly. With a rich past and
a bustling present, it has been the business hub of the region
from the very early days after
Cochin consists of mainland Ernakulam, the islands of Willington,
Bolgatty and Gundu in the harbour, Fort Cochin and Mattancherry
on the southern peninsula, and Vypeen Island north of Fort
Cochin, all was linked by ferry but now some islands have
bridges. The influence of Chinese, Jews, Arabs and Europeans
is evident in Cochin and its people. The oldest church in
India, 500-year-old Portuguese houses, and old tiled houses
built in the Chinese pagoda style, the famous Chinese fishing
nets, a Jewish community whose roots go back to the Diaspora,
synagogues and mosques all tell the fascinating story of this
harbor town. The harbor is still at the heart of the city
and pepper, sea food, rubber and coir mats and matting are
exported from here. Despite this, Cochin is an attractive
city with serene creak & lagoons overhung with feathery
coconut palms and picturesque islands. The older parts of
Fort Cochin and Mattanchery are an unlikely blend of medieval
Portugal, Holland and an English country village grafted onto
the tropical Malabar coast. Cochin is one of India's largest
ports and a major naval base.
