Cool place, worth seeing

Not much to see inside. The place smells strongly of urine outside. Also make sure you don't need to pee while you're there because their toilets are gross. Otherwise, impressive... read more

Walking along the Palace road was quite awesome, especially climbing hill in a cascade..flight of steps...garden...the trees around..green ambiance, cool breeze, chirping of birds, plant nursery[they do sale], dino model...deer park all are amusing sights...but felt a little disappointed as the museum part has closed for renovation...entry ticket cost for an adult 30, child 10, camera 50 & parking space...cool...

Wonderful Historical Place to visit. With a wide range of botanical view. Lots of plants and trees. The place has its own botanical nursery too. You can buy plants from there. Kept Clean and neatly maintained. Definitely worth a visit.

Not much to see inside. The place smells strongly of urine outside. Also make sure you don't need to pee while you're there because their toilets are gross. Otherwise, impressive architecture. There is a huge wooden elephant inside. The place is teeming with friendly schoolkids. Difficult to get there from Fort Cochin.

The garden in front of the palace is also large and beautiful. Entry ticket is Rs.20/- only. There are volunteers at each station to explain you the history of that... More

Excellently maintained piece of history. The place is a beauty with lots of stuff to see. Definitely visit if you are a true fan of old times. The place is quite famous through various movies and especially Manichithrathazhu . There was a lot of preserved animals and birds here but no more. Lack of care is quite visible or maybe... More

The palace is a great example of Kearla architecture and there are a lot of things to see ,,,,but the maintenance of the palace should be better and the gardens are not maintained properly
