Few places in India have garnered the kind of love and attention from the world that Kerala has. Known for its lush green plantations and serene backwaters that provide a rejuvenating ambiance, Kerala is the perfect getaway for anyone looking for a holiday amidst nature. While Kerala is full of stunning locations like Munnar popular for its tea plantations, Varkala for its magnificent beach, Alleppey for its backwaters and Aranmula for its snake boat race, one city in Kerala where you can witness the daily life and culture of the state in all its glory is Kochi. Made up of a few islands criss-crossed by sea waters and backwaters alike, Kochi is a major port city and one of Kerala’s most prominent tourist spots. On the one side, it has the deep blue Arabian Sea and on the other, the lush green Western Ghats. Apart from its geographical brilliance, Kochi is also a cultural delight. You will find everything from Chinese fishing nets and spice markets to age-old Dutch homes and Jewish synagogues in Kochi. The people here are always enthused about festivals and events. Remember the welcome Sunny Leone received when she visited Kochi? This and much more makes Kochi an irresistible place to visit in Kerala. Here are some amazing Kochi images that give you a glimpse of life in this wonderful port city. Also Read - Kerala Reports First Coronavirus Death. A Reason to Worry? | 5 Points
