|Kochi is an ancient city dating back to the Middle Ages. It has been mentioned in the travelogues of Chinese, Arab, Dutch, Portuguese and French traders and merchants. Once a bustling city with a large foreign population, the now-quiet streets of Kochi still retains the cosmopolitan touch, as can be seen from the presence of churches, synagogues and palaces built in widely different architectural styles. The Mattancherrry Palace, built by the maharaja of Kochi, stand in silent testimony to the days gone by. The Chinese fishing nets used by the fishermen of Kochi point to the many foreign influences that shaped this city. The 500-year-old Jewish Synagogue speaks of the tolerance of the ruler of Kochi who sheltered the Jews fleeing persecution in Europe. The Dutch Palace was actually built by the Portuguese and captured by the Dutch in their fight over the strategic port city. The St. Francis Church, with old stained glass windows, once held the bones of the Portuguese traveler Vasco Da Gama.
