From visiting beautiful temples to savouring delicious seafood, there is so much you can cover in your trip to Ernakulam to make it a memorable one.

Places to visit

Jewish Synagogue

Built in 1568, it is one of the oldest and still active synagogues. The Jewish Synagogue or the Paradesi Synagogue is a beautiful place of worship which attracts many visitors to Ernakulam. It is indeed a fabulous place to visit that is adorned with beautiful Belgian chandeliers.

Ernakulam Shiva Temple

Ernakulam Shiva Temple, located in the heart of the city, is dedicated to Lord Shiva who is considered as the protector of the city. It is one of the very rare idols of Shiva that faces the sea towards the west. It is definitely one of the major temples in Ernakulam.

Kerala Museum

Also known as the Hill Palace Museum, it is Kerala’s first heritage museum and a must visit for archaeological lovers. One can find many interesting paintings, murals and sculptures, but the major draw remains the single-storeyed Kerala-style ettukettu (a type of traditional homestead) which is the oldest building in the palace complex. It is a must-visit place during your trip to Ernakulam.
