With the departure of the British, Fort Cochin witnessed the transition of the town from British Cochin to Fort Cochin, a little enclave of sorts where both history and modernity seemingly merged. We take a look at this "Vintage Fort Cochin", its people and its institutions that evoked a breath of life into this historical town.
As time marches forward, the spirit of Fort Cochin continues to inspire. Its story echoes through the ages, reminding us of the beauty in embracing diversity, fostering togetherness, and cherishing our shared heritage. Vintage Fort Cochin is a window to an era filled with love, life, and harmony—a legacy that will forever resonate in the hearts of those who called it home. This walk is a tribute to the timeless spirit of Fort Cochin.
Footnote: This walk mainly covers the contemporary history of Fort Cochin from the 20th century.
