- Respecting all faiths, I visit temples, mosques, and churches without highlighting my caste. Experience tranquility at Thrikkakara Temple, regardless of your caste. This spiritual haven effortlessly eases away tensions, offering a serene retreat for every soul. A must-visit destination for inner peace and harmony!Written 7 November 2023
- Vasco da Gama Square is located near the ancient Chinese Fishing Nets of Kochi, along the "boardwalk" that runs along the beach. This is an interesting area where you can find many booths with tourist souvenirs and "street food" items. This is an area where you also just walk along through the "Square" to view the beach - which is especially nice if you can come at sunset. The nearby Church of Saint Francis Kochi is another must see place because of its historical significance - one of the oldest European churches in india and the Tomb of Vasco da Gama.Written 4 October 2023

- This is a heritage property situated on the banks of Periyar river flowing through Aluva.It is constructed in the traditional Kerala style of architecture by king Maharaja Karthika Thirunal Dharma Raja around 1900 during the reign of the Chera kings of Travancore. This was later taken over by the Government of Kerala and now it is managed by Kerala Tourism Department.
This Palace used to be the summer residency of the Travancore royalty. Over the years, this Palace has been the halt for many including Prime Ministers, Chief Ministers, film actors and many other dignitaries.
It is overlooking the river and the famous Sivarathri Manappuram. On the other side is a beautiful and sprawling garden. The buildings and the garden had been the venue for many film shootings also.
The rooms are quite large built in traditional style and the tariff very reasonable compared to hotel rooms. There are not many rooms and one risk of booking this place is they may cancel the booking suddenly if any VIP is visiting.
Food will be served if you place an order. There is ample parking facility.Written 19 October 2022

- The Vypin Lighthouse or Cochin Lighthouse is situated at Puthuvype in Kochi and is the tallest lighthouse in Kerala.On a payment of Rs 20 entry fee was allotted a time frame of 30 minutes on top of the lighthouse viewing gallery which thankfully had a elevator service upto the third floor.The view from the top was indescribable and akin to a V.I.P had the entire viewing deck to my convenience as otherwise most tourist viewing decks get crowded .Visiting hours are from 1000-1300 hrs and 1400hrs - 1800 hrs.Written 23 March 2023
