Department of French and Evergreen Tourism Club UG and PG students and teachers spent a wonderful morning walking in Fort Kochi on 18th of April 2022.

Accompanied by a great and engaging guide, Rajesh Sir (Freelance Kerala Tour guide), we walked in Fort Kochi for around 2 hours, discovering or re-discovering important places and monuments, with the sea on our side. We then met Sir Vishnuraj P., IAS officer, Sub Collector of Ernakulam District, for an interactive session about Fort Kochi heritage and Tourism perspectives. And, after this, the pleasure of refreshments, offered by Sir Sreejith, Field Officer, DTPC, Ernakulam Official.

Merci beaucoup !!!!

Did you know that Fort Kochi has a fantastic heritage?

For example: Saint Francis Church, in Fort Kochi (Fort Cochin), was originally built in 1503, is one of the oldest European churches in India and has great historical significance as a mute witness to the European colonial struggle in the subcontinent.

“Fort Cochin probably has the best preserved history of colonial times and the ideal way to bring it alive is to take a walk down its old colonial roads, with its tree-lined avenues and quaint little lands and beside the seashores – where magnificent Chinese fishing nets sketch a spectacular skyline. It is believed that Chinese travelers during the reign of Kubla Khan had introduced this art of Chinese fishing to Cochin.”
