The ginger warehouse

At the heart of spice trade in Cochin, there runs an exclusive Ginger export house run by the Gujarathi merchants. A historical piece of building that reminds us of a prosperous era in trade! Local women workers clean, strain and dry ginger at the warehouse for a daily wage of 60 to 75 rupees – bare enough to meet the dead ends?

Ginger has great medicinal value yet its smell and dust suffocate any normal visitor after 5 minutes.
