Chinese Fishing Net .
Cochin or Kochi - a city built on scattered islands. What makes Cochin unique is that the city straddles the portion of land between the Arabian Sea and the mouth of the backwaters. A quaint system of ferries connects the various parts of the city. Cochin was born in a storm, nurtured in rivalry and established as the crossroads of the 'battling empires of Europe ­the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British. In the 1340's, torrential rains filled the Periyar River which broke into the Arabian Sea and formed, Cochin's protected harbour. Trading ships soon sailed in and out. The much photographed Chinese fishing nets at the harbour-mouth best seen at sunset, testify to Cochin's pre-European association with China.
