A must visit is the Jewish street where the Synagogue is located. The place is full of art shops having thousands and thousands of unique items to buy. When in Kochi must visit this place.

My wife and I enjoyed the fish and vegetable market, as well as the many 500-600 year old Portuguese warehouse in the district. There is also a outdoor hand-laundry that dates to washing clothes for Dutch solders in the mid-1700s.
