Kochi, which translates to “small lagoon” in Malayalam, the native language of Kerala, is a major port city that was once the centre of the ancient spice trade. Centuries of trading and migration have given Kochi a unique culture and architecture that fascinate many tourists. Colonial churches and forts, lush backwaters, scenic hills and tranquil beaches are just a few of the city’s many appeals.
