Fort Cochin is a small, historical region in the region of Cochin (also spelt Kochi) in Kerala. It was one of the first European townships in India, first drawing traders over 600 years ago. As a result of those first visitors, the area has an incredible array of infrastructure and architecture – from Chinese fishing nets, Portuguese synagogues, and British villages.
With many of these old buildings and sights still standing today, walking the streets of Kochi – combined with the typical craziness that is India – is a visual feast for the senses.
We spent an afternoon exploring Fort Cochin and Matancherry – the old bazaar district – taking photos of the interesting things we found along the way. These were some of the coolest streets we have explored in all of India and we loved capturing its quirks. We hope you enjoy them!
