    Koder House

    by illumina Updated Dec 17, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Koder House is actually now a boutique hotel, but this three-storeyed building opposite the beach at Fort Kochi is a landmark for visitors, and is pointed out with the same reverence as the Francis Church or the Chinese fishing nets. Until recently, it belonged to the most illustrious Cochin Jewish family, the Koders, who were the 'uncrowned business tsars' of Cochi for over a century. The house was visited in its heyday by Presidents, Prime Ministers, Viceroys, Ambassadors and other prominent dignitaries.

    Even if you can't afford to stay here, take a look at the exterior, and I believe the restaurant is open to non-residents.

    This magnificent building stands as a testimonial indicating the transition from colonial to Indo-European architecture. It was built in 1808 by Samuei Koder of the Cochin Electric Company.
