    Lots of work has been done to improve the cleanliness and look of the temple. Steps to Kil Kavvil has be laid nicely.
    Queue system is good, but you should put the timings as when the Nda will be opened or announce it often. Devotees with Children will benefit if they know when the queue will start moving.
    Information centre can be provided for visitors to know much about the Chotanikara temple. Lots of different states people are coming. This time I guided some team as they were struggling to know the basic things, and they were all from Andhra.
    Thanks to the management as they are doing continous improvements for the betterment of the devotees.

    A nice Synagogue, well maintained and guarded by the military personnel with the real gun, which is important during the current situation. The people behave respectfully and you can enjoy the visit. A little museum provides enough information in English so visitors can learn about the Jewish diaspora in Kochi.

    A must-visit place when you visit Fort Kochi. A prime attraction for tourists in the Kochi region. Most people don't realise the Dutch influence on India until they come to this place. This palace with a nice view is well-maintained and has a unique collection. It's not air-conditioned and can get hot inside. The entrance fee is just Rs 5. Weekends draw huge crowds and traffic congestion. The exterior boasts vast, beautifully maintained lawns.

    The palace, serving as a museum, is a beautiful architectural delight. The old palace vibe is well-preserved. Only a part is open to tourists, detailed with intricate ceilings, windows, doors, and woodwork what sets the palace apart is its stunning mural paintings, depicting scenes from the Ramayana and Mahabharata, as well as portraits of the Kochi royal family. The vibrant colours and intricate detailing offer a fascinating insight into Kerala's artistic heritage. The palace is approximately 1 km walk from Fort Kochi jetty.

    Architecture lovers will appreciate the gorgeous detailing of the works in the palace and the interiors are photogenic. No photos are allowed in some rooms with murals. There is a UPI ticket payment option. Open parking is available with restricted access to specific sections. It shares a wall with Pazhayannur Mahavishnu Temple. The Dutch Palace is a prime tourist attraction in Fort Kochi with notable Dutch influence.

    Completed in 1905 this Gothic style cathedral is located in the historic center of Kochi. It looks very much like any Roman Catholic church in Europe of the same time period (early 19th century). The tropical setting however makes it distinct. Special are the paintings and frescoes in the interior. Don't forget to look up.

    A pity the original cathedral was demolished by the British. From the early 1500s only Saint Francis church is left.

    Relaxing walk by the sea in the evening with cool breeze. Good seating areas by the sea. A bunch of streetside vendors and a few shops and small bridges. Had an excellent sunset view.

    The church is open in spite of ongoing renovations. This church was founded by the Portuguese, later Dutch took over destroying all the Catholic paintings and decorations. Subsequently British took over . And now this is governed by the Church of Southern India. The construction temporarily brought in some chaos. The original tomb of Vasco da Gama is here. The remains were later taken back to his Portuguese homeland.

    Our hotel was on Princess street so we got to walk it and enjoy it many times. Many lovely stores with souvenirs and clothes. Old Jewish merchant house is very interesting as it has a connection corridor between two buildings.
    Safe to walk even at night.
    Retained the climate of old Kochi - Indian but with European touch.
