Bastion Bungalow Museum, Fort Kochi, Kerala

CLIENT: Department of Archaeology, Government of Kerala

Bastion Bungalow, situated inside Fort Kochi, is one of the oldest Dutch heritage sites in India. Built by the Dutch in 1663, this historic landmark stands on the remnants of Fort Immanuel, built by the Portuguese in 1503. After British dominion was established in Kerala several portions of the Fort were destroyed however, the Bungalow remained intact and continued to be used as a colonial administrative building, a private residence and now as a museum.
This unique structure was recently declared a District Heritage Museum by the Kerala Government and plans are afoot to upgrade it into a world class Heritage Museum.
