History of Cochin


Cochin is a city in the state of Kerela and is located towards the southern tip of the Indian peninsula. It has always been a major shipping port in India and its proximity to the Arabian Sea has made a center of trade and commerce. Even during the period of colonization, Cochin had retained its significance. We get the earliest accounts of Cochin in the records made by the Chinese traveler Ma Huan. We also find the references to Cochin in the travelogue by Niccolo da Conti who had stepped on the land of Cochin in 1440AD. The city has developed well in the last four-five years and since then it has been a major development center.
