Reviewed By EGL0

An almost bewildering private collection of (in the main) high end cultural artefacts from musical instruments to Theyyam masks and costumes to oil paintings to puppets to antique Keralan front doors, well displayed and maintained over 3 floors in a glorious traditional Keralan teak building. Courteous, knowledgeable staff. 100R entrance + 100R for use of a snapshot camera. Slightly haphazard labelling of exhibits but fine for me - would have been overwhelming otherwise Glorious theatre on the top floor with a coffered wooden ceiling embellished with beautifully detailed paintings depicting Hindu deities and scenes from the Hindu epics. Small cafe adjoining. A "must see" for anyone interested in the culture / ethnography of Kerala. There is a shop but the sales staff are not pushy in any way.

LuLu Mall

Reviewed By Bolghaty - Ernakulam, India

Pics were not permitted but I did click some from outside. Undoubtedly world class hyper market with choicest of freshly made mouthwatering multiple cusine delicacies sold as take away (except chat and fruit juice)... people thronging and fighting to get Arabian, Kerala, Tandoori, Chinese, Continental food and array of breads with ultra fresh salads n cheese...yet no dearth of piping hot supply from the hyper market kitchen! Priced cheapest in the world and quality best in category. The fish,meat, vegetables,fruits (dry fruits too best of world products) were topmost in quality and freshness personified! Priced cheapest ofcourse. The deals in all veriety of groceries,cosmetics,diary,pickles etc and home needs seemed irresistibly good. Staff over worked and cash counters overflowing but somehow there seemed order and efficiency in all that crowd and chaos. MUST VISIT in cochin and Mall itself is a sure shot full day of fun,food and time well spent on value shopping at competitive rates. Food Court is fantastic and needs another exclusive review.

Chinese Fishing Nets

Reviewed By Violetmoonwater - Fairfield, United States

These fishing nets are so brilliantly designed and like very few on earth. It's a treat to watch this marvel of ancient engineering. There are multiple nets being operated all day everyday, and the boardwalk offers a chance to eat fresh fish, buy souvenirs, and walk by the beach. A fun way to spend some time and a memorable place to visit in Cochin!
