Old Synagogue

by SirRichard

This jewish synagogue was built in 1568 AD. Its at the end of an alley and inside you will see the great scrolls of the old testament (copper plates where the grants of privilege made by the Cochin rulers were recorded). Don't miss the Chinese hand painted tiles, all different and 200 years old. You can easily recognize the building by its a clock tower.

St Francis Church

by suvanki

This is reputed to be the oldest European Church in India, built by Portuguese Franciscan Friars in 1503.

The original church was made of wood, being rebuilt in stone mid 16th century.

The Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama, arrived in Kerala in 1498, and settled in Cochin in 1502, hoping to establish Spice trading and convert the citizens to Catholicism. He set up a factory here, and returned as Portuguese Viceroy in 1510, Following his death in 1524, he was buried in this church, although his tombstone can be seen at the east end of the church, his remains were transported to Lisbon. Other colonials are buried here.

Dutch protestants, and Anglicans later ran the church, now it is in the hands of The Church of South India.

It is only open for well attended services on Sundays. English at 8am and Malayalam at 9.30am.

It's not possible to look around the church during services, but you may stand in the entrance and enjoy the solemnity of the service.

An unusual feature is the punga or punkah system of manual air conditioning. large fans suspended from the ceiling are manually operated by men pulling ropes (punkhawallahs)

We were only able to view the church from the entrance, as a service was in progress, but we could clearly see the punga fans, and it was very moving to hear the hymns sung by the mainly female congregation.

See intro for more info.
Afraid my photo didn't turn out

Mattancherry Palace

by PierreZA

This palace was built by the Portuegese in the mid-1500's.
It is called the Dutch Palace, as it was renovated by the Dutch in 1663. The museum is being upgraded at this stage, but you can still visit.
Most outstanding for me: the Hindu murals with amazing detail of Hindu scenes.
No photography allowed.

Ernakulam - Cochin

by assedo

"Cochin"

Walk around Jewish trade area, get inside art galleries and museums, play with children, watch dolphins in front of the Chinese nets, choose your lunch/dinner at the fish market (sea front) and let they to cook it on the grill. Super and good fun with waiters ready to convince any new tourist to sit at their place with their multilanguage repertory.

"Ernakulam"

Very interesting the visit @ India foundation teather (Kalathiparambil Lane Ernakulam)
You can learn everything about Katakali dance and indian heritage from the voice of the master Devan.
