Photographer's Note

Fort Cochin is a very pleasant stop on your way to the backwaters in Kerala. It makes for a great and relaxing afternoon and evening.

The shore is famous for its ancient Chinese Fish Nets, which takes 7 to 8 men to operate. Those were introduced by the Portuguese as they colonized the Southern part of India.

Although those have been replaced by more modern and efficient fishing techniques all over in India, Cochin is still operating those to the delight of photographers passing by.
