72 Hours in Kochi: An Ideal Holiday

Discovering India’s Jew Town!

Kochi is a city very much defined by its serenading backwaters and blue breeze. But while the as-seen-in magazine images of Fort Kochi’s big brown walls and golden, picturesque Cherai beach are most certainly true, the coastal Kerala state city offers much more than just its vibe.

Steeped in history, this place dates back to 1102 AD when the Kulashekhara empire was demolished and the city of Kochi (formerly known as Cochin) was formed. Proudly flaunting the charm of being one of the safest harbours in India, it also is the first princely state to join the Indian Union. And even though Kochi is known as an important commercial centre of Kerala, the destination is making waves for its beautiful landscapes and tourism experiences.
