A bit of interesting trivia about Kochi. Kochi or Cochin? In case you’re wondering what’s the right term to refer to this place, you’re right in both cases. Cochin was the colonial term used by the British in the early days. Kochi was the term used by the local townsfolk in the region and it eventually went on to be the official name in the 90s.

Another iconic sight that you simply cannot miss while traversing the coastal stretch as part of your Kochi sightseeing experience are the one- of-a-kind fishing nets you would have never seen elsewhere. These nets are called Cheenavala - which translates to Chinese nets. Believed to be introduced to the local fishermen by Chinese traders during the rule of Kublai Khan, these structures are huge bamboo poles with nets tied to one end and dip and rise from the waters. Do make it a point to snap a picture in front of these, as you’ll never find such mechanisms outside of China.

Another fabulous stop during your Cochin sightseeing journey as part of your first leg of your Kerala tour is the Mattancherry Palace. The breath- taking piece of architecture is constructed in typical Kerala style with generous usage of timber and sporting the iconic sloping roofs. The Mattancherry Palace was a gift from the Portugese to the king of Cohin in the 16 th century.

Following the palace and next in line in your kerala sightseeing experience is the Jewish Synagogue located close to Mattacherry Palance. Be overwhelmed by the intricate Chinese tilework and extravagant Belgian chandeliers suspended from the ceilings.
