A date with art

It’s the best of times to visit Fort Kochi. As the 4th edition of Kochi-Muziris Biennale unfurls, the historic fort area, and its neighbour, Mattancherry, come alive with most imaginative works of art. Abandoned colonial buildings and old warehouses play host to contemporary displays, creating a stunning juxtaposition of the old and the new.


We invite you to join us for this unique art festival. And go beyond the walls of the galleries to see more. Silk Route Escapes introduces art holidays that include art walks, and a special curation of immersive experiences called ‘Art and Things we heart’.
