Local Attraction

Set on a cluster of islands and a peninsula, Cochin (now, Kochi) is a blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and an English country village. Here you can see the oldest church in India, winding streets crammed with 500-year old Portuguese houses, cantilevered Chinese fishing nets, a well-settled Jewish community, a 16th century synagogue and a palace built by the Portuguese and given to the Raja of Cochin.

The Mattancherry Palace was built by the Portuguese in 1557 and presented to the Maharaja of Cochin, Veera Kerala Varma (1537-61), as a gesture of goodwill. It was substantially renovated by the Dutch after 1663, hence its other name, the 'Dutch Palace'.

The most important feature of this palace, however are the astonishing murals in the bedchambers and other rooms, which depict scenes from the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Puranic legends connected with Shiva, Vishnu, Krishna, Kumara and Durga.

These murals are undoubtedly some of the most beautiful and extensive to be seen anywhere in India.


The newly renovated Infinity Pool-Aquarius offers a stunning view of the Arabian Sea.

A qualified practitioner at the Taj Malabar's Ayurvedic Massage Centre demonstrate the efficacy of this 2000-year old tradition of Herbal Massage.

Moored right at your doorstep, the Taj Malabar's own 'Pathira Manal' is the best way to take in Cochin's famed natural beauty. Enjoy cocktails and dinner as you cruise languidly in the harbour. Even go on up to charming, colonial Kumarakom on the banks of Vembanad Lake, spending the night in a charming cabin on board. Swimming, jogging, table tennis, indoor board games and sightseeing on request.
