Willingdon Island is the home of the modern port that serves Kochi in Kerala, India. The island is an artificial man-made island created from the sand dug out while deepening Kochi port. It has been named after Lord Willingdon, the former Madras governor, who was instrumental in implementing this island project.
It is a major port in India, and a landmark in the city of Kochi, Kerala. It serves as a link between the other sea ports of the world.
