Queen of the Arabian Sea

Explore Kochi (Cochin)'s surroundings by going to Vaikom Mahadeva Temple (in Kottayam) and Alappuzha (International Coir Museum & Thuravoor Mahakshethram). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shiva Temple, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, admire the striking features of Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica, and view the masterpieces at Durbar Hall Art Gallery.
