Its the center at the heart of the tourist places in Kochi. But it could be maintained well, shopping prices are high.

This is certainly a very vibrant, picturesque, if smelly (fish stalls) and filthy, even for India, area.

This is a good place in Fort Kochi to get a feel for how locals spend their time around. The market and stands are not geared at tourists and it is relaxing not to be offered something every step of the way

This is place is good for visit but it always smells fish. This is opposite of the beach. The place is good but require some cleaness and maintenance.

Seeing the fishing nets in operation is interesting but the broader outlook is of industrial premises on the opposite shore they looked rather like an oil refinery.
