Mattancherry is an area which is well worth exploring. Our highlight was the visit to Mattancherry Palace with its fabulous murals. Make sure you leave yourself enough time - there is a lot to see in the palace!

mattanchery still retains the ancient charm in its roads, buildings and synagogue and in culture. shops offer many types of typical mementoes and curios, of course at a price. bargain and be sure they are genuine.

It's an assault on the senses but worth it. Don't even take your camera into the Dutch Palace. Some guy next to me was taking photos(banned) but I was accosted by the room guard. When I refused to show him my pictures, he gave me a 'chinese burn' twist to my wrist to force me. Sure enough, nothing there and... More

Walk by the streets of Mattanchery and experience yourself the uniqueness of the area which cannot be experienced from any where else in town. It is sure that you will start to think that you are down the streets of Great Britian or Portuguese at least once while you stand in front of some building down the streets of Mattanchery

Starting with the architecture of the different churches, palaces, temples, mosques, old houses, spice markets, and ending up with the shopping streets and the vast array of restaurants - there is something for everyone. Make sure you explore the small alleys, there are surprises at every corner - old... More
