Cost Gama, your home in Fort Cochin, is ideally located, very near to the heritage zone, with close proximity to all the major attractions in Fort Kochi, yet out of hustles of the crowded area. The age old St. Francis Church, Santa Cruz Baslica, Jewish Synagogue, Dutch Palace, Parade Ground, Dutch Cemetery,etc are at walkable distance. Strolling down the ancient streets of Fort Cochin, from Costa Gama upto the beach, will take you to the colonial ages. The Chinese fishing nets and Vasco da Gamma square are all in the vicinity, while you walk through the popular hangout places of Princes Street.
Cost Gama which is easily accessible from the Cochin International Airport, as well as the major railway stations in Ernakulam, is also close to other means of transport. The Bus hault as well as taxi - auto stands are just a stone-throw distance from your home in Fort Cochin
Fort Cochin is believed to be the oldest European Settlement in India and St. Francis Church was the first European Church to be built in India. Fort Cochin probably has the best preserved history of colonial times and the ideal way to bring it alive is to take a walk down its old colonial roads, with its tree-lined avenues and quaint little lands, stretching upto the beach, where magnificent Chinese fishing nets sketch a spectacular skyline.
Infact, Fort Kochi is a unique place in the whole of the world where you get to see a mosaic of the world culture, European architecture and the flora and fauna of different parts of the world. Rightly so, UNESCO has declared it as a living monument of world culture. The streets and ancient buildings in Fort Cochin, portrays a combination of different cultures, contributed from the Protugese, the British and the Dutch, who set their foot on this marvelous land, which is indeed the crown of the Queen of the Arabian Sea.

I hope to return again one day soon. I am very sad to be leaving. Thank you so much. All the best for the future. -- Jennie, UK
