Discover Fort Kochi India

Fort Kochi, also known as Old Kochi or West Kochi is a water-bound town to the southwest of mainland Kochi. It is most famous for its ghost-like Chinese fishing nets that sit along the water's edge. Vast wooden structures with hand operated nets, their eerie quality make for incredible photographs and their slow movements have an almost hypnotic quality. Fort Kochi is also home to several religious monuments, embodying Kerala's cosmopolitan population - including St Francis' Church, where Vasco de Gama was once buried, a Jain temple and several Jewish synagogues.
