Kochi: Travel Guide

 
N / A (Author)
Synopsis

Lying on the western edge of Kerala, Kochi, watered by the Arabian Sea and the vast Vembanad Lake, has long been the commercial centre of 'God's Own Country'. It has seen many seafarers drop anchor at its port drawn by the riches it had to offer in pepper, the precious 'black gold', and other spices.

Kochi Travel Guide explores Kochi's main commercial centre, Ernakulam, the charming heritage towns of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry, and the islands of Willingdon, , Vallarpadom and Bolgatty. The book takes the reader into the region's varied past, from pre-colonial times to its Portuguese, Dutch and British histories, its rich culture and distinctly cosmopolitan character, while at the same time showing off its incredible scenic beauty —the palm-fringed beaches and stretches of lush green paddy fields, intersected by languid backwaters.

For those wishing to explore beyond Kochi, the book offers short excursions to historically-significant Kodungallur, and the revered Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple, among others.

The guide also delves into the rich cultural traditions of Kochi — its many festivals, dance forms including Kathakali, Ayurvedic treatments and its delectable cuisine.

With over 130 stunning photographs, a hand-drawn map and an up-to-date practical information section, this guidebook will be an invaluable companion for both the intrepid tourist and the armchair traveller.
