Old Spice Market in Mattanchery, Fort Kochi, Kerala

 

Bazar Road

Bazar Road, Mattanchery

The Spice market in Mattanchery has retained its status as an important center of spice trade in India. The exotic fragrance of the finest ginger, cloves, cardamom, turmeric and pepper, also known as black gold, emanate from the spice warehouses lining both sides of the street that our new property, Spice Harbour, calls home.

The bustling trade of spices is illustraetd by the trucks going to and from the warehouses, loads being taken in and out using pushcarts, and the sight of workers drying, sorting and packing spices to be exported to other countries.
