    Best museum in Kerala! This private museum has the best collection of paintings, photographs, sculptures, jewelry and various accoutrements of dance forms in Kerala that I've seen. They showcase beautiful examples of wood carvings and statuary from around the state. There are fine examples of Hindu, Christian, Islamic and Jain art as well as some ancient prehistoric artifacts. This museum has it all. They have also done a good job of providing informative signs everywhere.

    We visited this temple in the evening of Thursday and were warned about the crowds due to malai season. 2 bus loads of devotees got down just ahead of us and got in the line before us but the q was moved super quick and the darshan was sooper too.

    One of the 'No to be Missed' spots in the city tour, this monument besides its steep historical value is also an interesting museum of period collections.
    The architecture is typical of the region and the rich wooden usage is exquisite, indeed.

    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.

    Cherai Beach is relatively small but offers a peaceful atmosphere, particularly in the early morning when crowds are minimal. It's a great spot for water activities and strolls. The beach entrance is well-maintained, thanks to the diligent efforts of the cleaning staff. While food options are limited, local vendors offer tasty treats like fried bananas and spicy fried chillies. The beach offers ample parking right by the shore, making it convenient for visitors. Access is easy via the adjacent road, although parts of the beach may require a bit of climbing due to barriers separating it from the road. Evenings tend to be busier, with visitors arriving by bus to enjoy the sunset and water activities.

    Lifeguards are present on the main beach, but caution is advised for those venturing further into the water. Cherai Beach is approximately 25 km from downtown Kochi and 20 km from Cochin International Airport. Spanning about 10 km along the coast, it's known for its gentle tides and occasional dolphin sightings. The beach also offers a unique view where the backwaters meet the sea.

    Decent food and drinks if somewhat overpriced however the set up is quite picturesque if you're into that so it makes for cute photo opportunities.
    Staff were attentive and helpful.

    A v well preserved church which was replaced by a Catholic basilica. The artifacts from historical Kochi are well preserved. You can use your phone to take pictures but not a camera!

    Nice place where you can spend one evening with family. If you hav drawback e time you can enjoy a water metro ride in addition to the boat journey. View of sun set and a walk in sea shore by enjoying the cool Breeze from the sea will be a good experience to you . In week end the insufficient parking place is a drawback.

    Built by the Portuguese in 1510, the Church of St. Francis is thought to be India’s oldest European church. Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama was originally buried here. Although his remains were later removed, his unadorned tomb is set into the floor under a leaded glass window. The building is a handsome example of Portuguese Colonial style.

    Our first stop at Kochi was the Edappally Church Complex, which mesmerised us all due to its grandeur and beauty. A very nicely maintained complex with old church adjacent is really a place to visit. Once inside you feel the peace with the majestic wall paintings, the large ceiling fans and other sculptures. Although it is a pilgrimage destination for Christians, anyone can visit and its really worth a visit.
