Kochi: Kochi is the major port city on the west coast of India by the Arabian Sea. The city of Kochi is Kerala's second largest city.

Occupied by the Portuguese Empire in 1503, Kochi was the first of the European colonies in India. It remained the main seat of Portuguese India until 1530, when Goa was chosen instead. The city was later occupied by the Dutch and the British, with the Kingdom of Cochin becoming a princely state.
