    As a gateway to Kerala, Kochi is situated on the south-west coast of the India and was the first European settlement in the country. Its unique location between the blue waters of the Arabian Sea and Kerala’s emerald backwaters, combined with its rich medley of Indian and foreign architecture, make Kochi a special place to visit.

It is a two-story building around a central courtyard with numerous temples. It is also known as Mattancherry palace. The Indo-Portuguese Museum was established by Dr. Joseph Kureethra to protect the rich heritage of Portuguese influence on the city. Your guide will tell you more about all of these attractions.
