About Kochi

Kochi, for many, is a burgeoning cosmopolitan hub, pulsating with life in its streets, cinema halls, shopping malls, and skyscrapers. It proudly serves as the commercial capital of Kerala. To others, Kochi is a city deeply rooted in history, with streets resonating an old-world charm. It boasts beautiful monuments and is home to a rich tapestry of linguistic and ethnic communities, including Jews, Konkanis, Gujaratis, and more. Kochi presents a blend of modernity, old-world allure, and a global perspective, fostering both continuity and change simultaneously.

Kochi was an insignificant fishing village until, in the 14th century, the backwaters and the streams descending from the Western Ghats caused the separation of the village from the mainland, turning the landlocked harbour into one of the safest ports on India’s southwestern coast. The Portuguese penetrated the Indian Ocean in the late 15th century and reached India’s southwestern coast and founded the first European settlement on Indian soil at Kochi in 1500.Under Dutch rule (1663–1795) Kochi had its greatest prosperity. British rule over Kochi lasted from 1795 until 1947, when India became independent.

Kochi has a unique cultural legacy characterized by its heritage, values, and traditions. It seamlessly blends cosmopolitan living with contemporary conveniences while also preserving ancient customs and beliefs. It was a bustling centre of commercial activity, engaged in trade and commerce with numerous countries worldwide. Whether it was the Arabs, Greeks, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, or even the English, evidence of their influence on this region is apparent at various times. They have left a lasting imprint on the underlying culture of Kochi. Kochi boasts a wealth of tradition in the fields of architecture, sculpture, dance, martial arts, and handicrafts. The festivals celebrated in the district are marked by unparalleled grandeur, showcasing the diverse social and cultural milieu of Kochi.
