In the year 1857 India saw its people rise up to fight its First War of Independence. It also saw the birth of the Cochin Chamber of Commerce and Industry. First established in port towns, the Cochin Chamber of Commerce was the brainchild of a few English businessmen. Over the last 150 years, this establishment has grown along with Cochin and Kerala and celebrates its 150th Anniversary by releasing 'A Journey Through Time'. These pages trace the history of Kerala’s culture, trade, commerce and economy from the 19th century to the present.
