Ernakulam, the commercial district of the state of Kerala is situated in the heart of the State where it beats really soothingly. With its tropical monsoon climate and rapid growth rate, the city is endowed with divine temples, old churches that bring the feeling of nostalgia, and a culture which leaves its deep impression on the tourist’s mind.
The State is proud of this city for many reasons, out of which one remains to be the marvelous and communicative transportation services. The Cochin International film festival has a strong magnetic force that attracts the tourists and fills them with gaiety. The Ernakulathapan temple, Vallarpadam church, Jacobite Syrian church, St. Francis Church and many more tourist attractions in Ernakulam are adorable. There are over 20 TV and studio complexes which are worth a glance. The district is served by a Jetty which local residents and tourists can board to travel to distinct places nearby.
Though there are several places worth a visit in this peace-driven district, there are some destination spots which just can’t be missed. Marine Drive here gives us a view of the sea and the Cochin Port worth capturing in the memories along with the lovely boat rides. Hill Palace Museum at Tripunithura takes us back to the vintage time through the paintings, epigraphy and furniture of the royal family. While the Bolgatty and Willington Island gives us a tranquil feel, places like Dutch Palace, Kodanad, dam site of Bhoothathankettu, Wonder La Amusement Park, Pareekshit Thampuran and Kerala Historical Museum takes us closer to History and Nature.
This tranquil land that celebrates various religions under one sky in the form of Chendamangalam Village and is an excellent tourist destination!
