About Kochi


Kochi, formerly known as Cochin, is the most densely packed and economically vibrant city in the state of Kerala. Kochi has a long history as a commercial centre dating back to the 14th Century when the port of Kochi was one of the major centres of the international spice trade. The city’s importance as a trading centre led to Kochi being taken over by a series of colonial powers, first the Portuguese, then the Dutch and finally the British until India achieved independence in 1947. These temporary rulers all left an architectural and cultural mark on the city as did the many different groups of immigrants to the city, notably Jewish settlers and migrants from other parts of India. The city remains ethnically and religiously diverse with Christian’s making up around 35% of the city’s population.

Kochi is a popular tourist destination, particularly for Indian tourists. Foreign visitors often pass through Kochi on route to taking boat trips around the famous backwaters of Kerala. Kochi is built on a series of connected islands and peninsulas. The most popular area for tourists is Fort Cochin near the main harbour. The grid of streets in the Fort Cochin district was once enclosed by walls to form a defence citadel although very few remnants of the defence walls exist today.
