Queen of the Arabian Sea
Kochi is one of the principal seaports of the country and is located between the Arabian Sea and the Backwaters. Acclaimed as the finest natural harbour
in the world, Kochi - earlier known as Cochin - is a bustling port and a fascinating city. Built along a saltwater lagoon, the view of the vast stretch of the blue waters along with the Chinese nets is a sight worth beholding.
This, once a predominantly fishing village has today become an important trade centre for India. An interesting mix of Hindu, Muslim and British architecture can be seen on the beaches of Kochi.
One can travel to Kochi and enjoy a splendid stay among the emerald backwaters, making sure to visit during the months of September to May when the pouring rain has flooded the river - thus making it a very romantic experience.

Getting There
The strategic location as well as commercial importance has led to an extensive networking of transport in Cochin. It has an international airport where regular flights ply between important destinations. Kochi has three main railway stations namely, Ernakulam Junction, Ernakulam Town and Harbour Terminus on Willingdon Island.
An extensive network of national/state highways and local roads link Kochi to the rest of the country. Moreover, NH 47 from Kanyakumari to Salem passes right through the heart of the city while NH 17 to Mumbai and NH 49 to Madurai (in Tamil Nadu) starts from Kochi itself.

The festival of Ernakulathappan, the deity of the temple of Shiva, is an annual festival lasting for eight days. The Seeveli procession with nine tuskers and Panchavadyam is the highpoint of the festival. Kathakali, Ottanthullal and music concerts are presented by renowned artistes. The festival concludes with the Arattu.
The Valanjambalam Devi Temple located in the heart of Ernakulam celebrates an annual festival known as Thalapoli Utsavam for two days.
Decorated elephants accompanied by temple musical ensembles known as Ezhunnallippu, is an important part of the festival.
