I went past what I thought must have been the square since the monument matched up with the map. There was no plaque or anything to explain what it was or how it got there.

The place is important only due to its historical importance. It needs lots of spending on infrastructure development.

At the Vasco da Gama Square in Kochi, you will find synagogues, mosques, churches and temples side by side. This place has a fascinating history. The historic Chinese fishing nets are a sight to behold

Vasco De Gama is a large square surrounded by historical sites as well as the Chinese fishing nets and restaurants / shops galore. Not worth a special visit but if you are in Fort Kochi than have a stroll around and take it all in.

There is not much to the place apart from the historical significance that Vasco da Gama once found himself living at this square which is now a crowded place filled with vendors and people visiting the church in name of vasco and apart from that the only thing that you could do around here is watching the Chinese fishing net...
