  • This place is full of not always classified books but what a pleasure to go snooping! You'll find old books and modern works. Very interesting

  • Heretofore this is the only bookshop that I have found since I have been in India; although I have seen quite a few cafés, especially in Varkala, with large book collections for sale. I stumbled into this store one evening, and was confronted by a large Albert Camus quote painted on the downstairs wall. They have a great selction of books, reasonably priced in my opinion, but it will become expenisive if one buys 3+ books. I ended up with two books, a Hemingway and a Camus. Thanks!
  • Great selection of books about Ayurveda (and many other subjects including yoga and Indian philosophy). The owner is very friendly and helpful. You can also ask for help in finding books that aren't available at the moment and get them shipped to your home. I can highly recommend this bookstore!

Where to stay in Kochi (Cochin)

Kochi offers abundant hospitality options, including a dense collection of international five-star hotels. Travelers on a budget can explore the selection of modest but impeccable homestays and guesthouses in the quieter neighborhoods just outside the central tourist area of Fort Cochin; these make great places to meet local hosts and fellow travelers. If you can spend a bit more, a number of boutique hotels in converted European-style mansions offer individual charm, and eco-villages and resort or retreat establishments outside the city center come with full wellness, spa, and culinary packages.
