Fort Kochi Post Office, Kerala, India
Some people enjoy train-spotting, whilst others enjoy post office spotting.
The Fort Kochi Post Office in Kerala, India, is inspiring. It is architecturally beautiful, not dissimilar to the lines of the Beechworth Post Office, although it is painted red and white, and is set in tropical gardens.
Like the Stanley Postal Agency, it has a lovely outlook, across from a sports oval.
Fort Kochi PO is welcoming. It has seats outside, along the cool colonnade where customers can wait, rest and chat.
The language in Kerala is Malayalam, but Fort Kochi PO was promoting a ‘Learn and Hindi Word a Day” – ‘prestige’ was the word of that day.
India Post’s latest stamp was released on 8 January 2015 by Prime Minister Modi to commemorate 100 years of Mahatma Gandhi’s return.
(Kochi was formerly known as Cochin).
