Suggested Activity #1 Chinese Fishing Nets
While strolling along Vasco da Gama Square, pause for a moment and witness the gallant Chinese fishing nets being operated by fishermen on a daily basis. Called Cheenavala in Malayalam, they work on the principle of balance. Fort Kochi is the only place in India that uses them. Get there around sunset for an unparalleled view of the nets bearing a cloak of stunning colours.
Suggested Activity #2 St. Francis Church
Known to be India’s first European church, it curiously transformed from a Roman Catholic Church during Portuguese rule (in 1503) to a Dutch Reformist Church (in 1664) to, finally, an Anglican Church (in 1804). Popular as the resting ground of Vasco da Gama, who was buried here in 1524, it attracts hundreds of tourists from all over the world; even though his remains were sent to Lisbon 14 years later
Suggested Activity #3 Mattancherry & Jew Town
In Mattancherry, the Palace Museum is worth a visit. It features murals, art and royal paraphernalia of the Rajas of Kochi. Jew Town houses the oldest Jewish Synagogue in India. It is said that even though Jews arrived in Kerala in 700 BC and built a prosperous community in this little town, there are now less than 13 Jewish residents, due to the majority’s migration to Israel.
Suggested Activity #3 Ayurvedic Spa
Ayurvedic treatment in Kerala is legendary and so make sure you don’t leave without trying one. Since the practice originated here, the options are endless, but one of the most popular treatments is Shirodhara, a gentle pouring of herbal oils over the forehead to treat a variety of conditions.
