Place Details

Though built around 1695 by the Dutch East India Company, David Hall, situated in Fort Kochi, gets its name from one of its later occupants, David Koder, a Jewish businessman. The Hall, which is now an art gallery, was originally associated with Hendrik Adriaan van Reed tot Drakestein, renowned Dutch commander better known for his Hortus Malabaricus, a pioneering compilation of the flora of the Malabar Coast.
