    A small collection but interesting to see the range of string instruments from around the world and their evolution over time

    A little known attraction for Western tourists but well worth the effort. The museum and palace was a train or bus ride from our Hotel Holiday Inn but we caught a taxi about $20 return It is a large complex with lovely gardens and very interesting displays. Make sure you follow the signs as it can be a steep walk if you go off the tracks. The Jewellery section was impressive, but as with so many things in India needs someone to dust and shine the exhibits. Some of the areas forbid photos and they are quite strict. There appeared to be very few hawkers etc which was a pleasant surprise. This is a place which is frequented by a lot of locals who are having a fun time on the many swings and generally enjoying themselves. There is a deer park in the grounds which is nice to sit and relax in.

    Cochin and Mattancherry host the Kochi-Muziris Art Biennale. The current one is due to end at the end of March 2017. the next one should begin in December 2018. The existence of the Biennale must surely have helped attract private art gallery owners to set up shop in the area. OED Gallery is one of these.

    The OED gallery occupies the extensive premises of what must have once been a warehouse or a group of warehouses. Leave Bazaar Road, and enter the long courtyard/garden belonging to OED. On either side of this open space there are converted buildings that serve as galleries to display the artworks on sale.

    OED specialises in contemporary Indian artworks. Its owner has good taste, and this is reflected in the wonderful displays of art that he sets up.

    Lovers of modern art should not miss this lovely new addition to the Cochin art scene.
