More about Cochin Kerala South India

Cochin is located in the southwest part of India in the state of Kerala and spreads over islands and foothills in a breathtaking location between the Arabian Sea and the backwaters. The city was founded in 1341, when a big flood created a natural safe harbor, which became the main port for the spice trade of the Malabar coast. Thus Cochin developed into the most important port of the Indian west coast for the spice trade with China and the Middle East. The former rulers invited people from different religions to settle down here. Thus churches, mosques and synagogues were created for people.

Cochin is the seat of the Roman Catholic bishopric of Cochin. In the city, there is also a base for the Indian Navy and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is commissioned to set up the SmartCity Cochin Technology Park.
