Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium is an international stadium in Kochi, Kerala.

The stadium has a capacity of 75,000 spectators making it the largest cricket stadium in India and second largest stadium in India after Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata. Eden Gardens, which used to be the largest cricket stadium in India, currently holds 66,349 people following renovations for the Cricket World Cup 2011; a capacity down from an estimated 100,000 before the upgrade. 

The stadium was built in 1996 by the Government of Kerala with Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA). The stadium is widely touted to be the noisiest cricket stadium in the world due to its distinctive architecture which makes the atmosphere deafening with around 75000 people cheering.

Originally constructed as a football stadium, it has played host to a number of international cricket and football matches. The extensive grounds of the stadium serve as venue for important exhibitions, cinema events and political rallies in the city. The stadium is equipped with floodlights for playing at night.

The architecture of the stadium is unique compared to other stadium in India. The most innovative aspect of the stadium is its unique lighting towers of 2 kW Floodlights which when switched on fully can provide lighting levels for HD telecast.

The stadium hosts the home games of football I-League team Chirag United Club Kerala. The stadium is also the home ground of the Kerala cricket team.
