Fort Kochi

A part of Kerala's economic capital, Kochi

The capital of Ernakulam District is Kochi whose two most important parts are Ernakulam City and Fort Kochi. Whereas Ernakulam City is as noisy and polluted as most large Indian cities, Fort Kochi, located on a small island separated from Ernakulam by the Arabian Sea, is a charming, small town with limited motorised traffic, and an important colonial heritage.
