An imposing building in Kochi
, Thakur House was constructed on the site of the sea facing Gelderland Bastion. Gelderland is one of the seven bastions of the old Dutch fort.
This elegant building, formerly known as Kunal or Hill Bungalow, holds within itself a reflection of the colonial era. It was home to the managers of the National Bank of India (NBI) during the British time.
Presently the house is maintained by the Ram Bahadur Thakur and Company, a renowned tea-trading firm.
