Bastion Bungalow

Bastion Bungalow to get the badge of Heritage Museum

Bastion Bungalow to get the badge of Heritage Museum is all about the new achievement of Bastion bungalow which is one of the oldest Dutch heritage sites in India. Bastion bungalow which is situated in Fort Kochi, Kerala will be the first heritage museum in the district of Ernakulam.

Raymond, executive director of Kerala Museum has been entrusted with the work to the path of the heritage museum title. He said work on this area in Bastion Bungalow has begun and it will take about two years for the completion of the work. It is a part of the initiative of the Kerala government which proposes to have a heritage museum in every district of Kerala.

Bastion Bungalow was part of the Fort Immanuel that was built by the Dutch in 1663, facing the calm sea. A part of it one of the bastions, Stromberg was later transformed into the present Bastion Bungalow. It is built modelling on the Indo – European style architecture. Later after the reign of Dutch when the British came to rule the Country, they destroyed the Fort Immanuel. But they didn’t touch the Bastion Bungalow and it remained intact.

After India got Independence from the British powers, it wasconverted into the residence of sub-divisional officers. In 2000, it was handed over to the archaeology department of India. In between these years the bungalow came into limelight when it featured in the Ivory Merchant film ‘Cotton Mary’ in the late nineties.

Mr. Raymond said that the Bungalow will now be turned into the first district heritage museum of the state. About Rs.1 crore has been allotted by the State government for the initial developmental works of the project. It would take about two years for completing the project. The state government hasset aside about Rs. 14 crore for the development of heritage museums in the state.

Raymond added that the after the completion of the project the Bastion Bungalow will be equipped with facilities to give compact information about all one wants to know about Kochi. The Kerala museum will be the nodal agency for setting up and managing heritage museums in every district of Kerala. The cultural affairs department is now trying hard to get UNESCO supported Heritage Conservation Project for Fort Kochi which contains several important heritage sites of Kerala.

lllikal Kallu and llaveezhaponchira

lllikal Kallu and llaveezhaponchiralllikal Kallu and llaveezhaponchira – Hills Of Happiness

A perfect spot for an all-women trek, lllikal Kallu and llaveezhaponchira offer amazing sights of pristine nature, excitement of trekking and unimaginable volumes of freedom.

Happiness was visible on everyone’s face as the group kicked off the journey on a sunny Saturday from Vytilla, Kochi, to lllikal Kallu and llaveezhaponchira. In fact, it was an escape for all those women on board from their hectic routines. Hopes began to rise as the journey proceeded through the Thodupuzha-Muttam- Melukavu route. It took only a few hours to reach the destination on the outskirts of Kottayam district.

Then, there was a short trekking. Although it was an easy trek, a few panted while climbing. But, none of them was ready to give up and went ahead. But, every difficulty flew away from their mind upon reaching the pinnacle of the hill, watching the beautiful hill surrounded by mist. It was afternoon but the sun was gentle. The team had to wait a bit to move the mist away to get the clear picture of the hill. And it was amazing.

“We are 6,000 ft above the sea level now,” said Indu, tour operator. lllikal Kallu is an array of three hills and is a good spot for photographers. As the mist moved away, the team was busy discussing the shape of the hill. While for some it looked as if a lion lay on a rock, for others, it seemed the image of a sage. Security measures are tightened on the area post two deaths of persons and tourists are allowed only to watch the hill from the viewpoint. However, it was sad to see a group of boys venturing into the restricted area neglecting the caution board.
Sitting there for a while savouring the beauty of the hill, the team descended the hill to have food.

Next destination was llaveezhaponchira. It was quite exciting for the driver to pull the vehicle on the bends and at one point he had to stop as the road was damaged. Then, a jeep came from the DTPC cottage, where the stay was arranged. It was a quite a bumpy ride but everyone loved it. The peaceful cottage on the top of llaveezhaponchira was a wonderful place to spend time. A lot of myths are tied to llaveezhaponchira, a place where leaves don’t fall. It is said that there is a pond that Pandavas built for Draupadi and another pond where Seetha took bath.

What excited the women was the freedom the place offered. Laying on the rock at night looking at the moon and walking on the road under moonlight without any fear were icings on the cake. And everyone retired to bed. The climate was cold but not chilling.

The next day’s activities began with a morning walk to the peak of llaveezhaponchira to watch the sunrise. The colours of sun, greenery, chirruping of birds provided a perfect ambience for meditation. After breakfast, it was time to pack. The return journey began. On the way, there was a waterfall to complete the adventure list. And, there they were going back to Kochi with loads of memories.

Kakkathuruthu

Kakkathuruthu – A gem in the backwater

Known as the island of crows, Kakkathuruthu is a tiny islet in Vembanad backwaters and can be accessed only by a traditional canoe cruise. Abin KI conies back impressed

Located in Ezhupunna panchayath near Eramalloor in Alleppey district, Kakkathuruthu is a five minute cruise into the Vembanand backwaters. The picturesque island is named so due to the large number of crows that arrive there at dusk to find shelter for the night.

With only 300 – odd homes here, life is peaceful and the locals are simple. The mud and sand roads, creeks, ponds, wells and two sacred groves – Plakkissery and Vadakkinezhathu are the prime attractions here. The lure of the island with lush coconut groves has been captured by photographers during sundown when the shadows extend and the sky shifts from soft blue to orange. The lined coconut trees and the presence of water weeds with flowers offer a charm to the pho-tographic enthusi¬asts and nature lovers. The quiet island is a haven for birdwatchers. They say, Thampi chettans house is the best spot to view the sunset.

One can witness Pathazham — the traditional water regulating equipment made of wood used for filling water into the creeks from the backwaters. Walking on bridges made of coconut wood to cross the creeks make the experience surreal.

On the Global Tourism Map The island has been recently listed in National Geographic Magazines ‘Around the World in 24 Hours/ a photographic tour of stunning travel spots in the world. It is the only spot to get an entry into the list from India, for the fine sunset views. The Nat Geo team had enjoyed the sunset views from a traditional rowboat on the calm backwaters. The photo had a flurry of sari clad women returning home in shallow boats and fishermen who light lamps and cast nets.

The visit was totally an awe- inspiring experience for me as it offered opportunities to observe the life of the islanders closely and the beauty of pristine nature. Beyond doubt, it is one of the best tourism spots I have visited till date.

Vytilla Mobility Hub

Vytilla Mobility HubVytilla Mobility Hub is a transit terminal in the city of Kochi with state of the art facilities. This well designed integrated transport terminal is a converging place for different forms of public transportation. Be it road transport, water transport or metro rail, you can find the right mode at this hub. Kochi is a fast growing metro city which requires comprehensive plan in order to meet the needs and demands in traffic and transport. The latest buzz is that the government has plans to develop the Vytilla Mobility Hub as a center of different public transportation system.

A Grand Funding Proposal From The French Development Agency

Uncertainty about the development of Vytilla Mobility Hub is over. The French Development Agency, AFD has been ready to offer financial support for the development of this project.  They offer funding at minimum interest rate. Considering this external support, the government has planned to develop Vytilla Mobility Hub. They planned to transform it as a center of different public transportation system. Further decisions will be made after the restructuring of the Mobility Hub Society Executive Committee. They have also plans to develop the 25 acres land at Vytilla. It may transform into Multi-model Transport Hub as a part of the first agenda of the new executive committee.

This 25 acres land at Vytilla has favorable conditions to convert it as a great hub. It can certainly unite different public transportation systems into one place. Many big cities of foreign countries can this type of transportation hubs. This kind of multi-model transportation hub will become more important in the future. So, it is important to combine the road, water and metro rail transportation under one ticket.

The French Development Agency (AFD) that provides external funding to the Kochi Metro has already commented about the favorable conditions at Vytilla to develop the multi-model transportation hub. AFD has informed their willingness to offer funding at minimum interest rate to this project also to Mr. Elias George, MD., the Kochi Metro Rail Limited. KMRL informed this finance proposal of AFD to the government. This matter will also be discussed in the upcoming Mobility Hub Executive committee. Government has shown interest in the proposal and has plans to take funding from AFD to complete the project.

One Stop For Bus, Metro And Boat

A traveler can easily go to different parts of Kochi city after the successful completion of Vytilla Multi-Model Transportation Hub. It will be a one-stop solution for bus, boat and metro rail transport. A person who reaches this hub from any place can continue his journey by choosing the right transportation mode. The best advantage of Vytilla is that it is adjacent to the National Highway. It is also a junction where 5 most important roads meet. Besides, Kaniyambuzha River shares one border of Vytilla Hub.

Convenient For Railway Passengers

One of the most important metro stations in the city is in the Vytilla Hub. Railway can find enough space here almost 300 meters away from the metro station to establish a halting station. If it will become a reality, this multi-model hub can include railway passengers as well. A railway halting station can be a good idea at the Vytilla Hub.  But travelers will not find any difficulty to reach the nearby railway stations in Kochi without a halting station. Both the Ernakulam North and South railway stations are only 4 kilometers from Vytilla Mobility Hub.

Better Public Utilities

The commercial requirements will be less after the makeover of Vytilla Hub to a multi-model transportation hub. The available space can be utilized for the improvement of public facilities. The authorities have already included more area for commercial purposes at Vytilla Hub for the survival of the Hub Society. But most of the shopping complexes still remain vacant in the hub. So, they decided not to include anymore in the upcoming multi-model transportation hub.

The funding offer from AFD is attractive for the government because of its minimum interest rate. However, the funds from this French Development Agency can be accepted only after the approval of the government and the Mobility Hub Society Executive. The application for the funding will be submitted only after getting approval from both these parties.  The main purpose of this new project at Vytilla is to bring different transportation means for the convenience of passengers. This project can be a comprehensive plan to meet different transportation needs of a fast growing city like Kochi.
