Thakur House, situated by the Dutch Cemetery road is an 18th century Dutch building. It was built on the Gelderland Bastion of the erstwhile Dutch fort, which was built around the bastions of the demolished Portuguese fort. Kochi was colonized by the Portuguese in the 16th century and then by the Dutch in the 17th century. Earlier, Thakur House was known as Kunal Bungalow or Hill Bungalow. This bungalow atop the cliff facing the sea, has been an iconic landmark at Fort Kochi for centuries.
