Expect the unexpected in Cochin
Cochin provides a variety of unexpected experiences: a tiny synagogue, and a Jewish presence some claim dates back to the time of Solomon. St. Francis Church, where Vasco de Gama was once buried.
There's also Mattancherry Palace, with a series of remarkable murals painted on its wooden walls. Cantilevered Chinese fishing nets, gracefully silhouetted against sky and sea. An opportunity to sail the “backwaters,” a network of rivers, streams, and canals, for a peek at traditional rural lifestyles. And of course the spellbinding Kathakali dance, with its highly stylized performances and elaborate makeup and costumes.Download An Explorer Guide +
