Kathakali is a traditional and colorful dance/drama/art form of Kerala and the required makeup involved is painstaking.

There's an old 13th-Century synagogue in old Cochin on, you guessed it, Jew Street.

Inside one of Cochin's cathedrals, (a setting for some scenes in Salman Rushdie's A Moor's Last Sigh), this hanging apparatus is actually a fan - useful for the freaking hot and humid weather here.

Mecca is that way...in case you needed to know. This was on the ceiling of my room at Le Meridien in Cochin - the first time I've seen such a sign.
