The palace looks fine. Not much to see if you have already seen a lotta palaces around India. 2 hours worth of sight seeing is there. The jewel museum was unique and interesting; lots of artifacts in gold. Deer park had lots of deers too. Beware of cheaters. We were charged a ticket of 50 bucks for camera in addition... More

I had recenlty visited this place. Was keen to see due to the history's behind it and also because a lot of Malayalam movies are shot here. I felt that the place can be maintained more better. Found a lot of doors and window glasses broken which can be replaced. Wish Indians would learn from the other places abroad on... More

Very Old palace and earlier residence of Kochi Royal family, built in 1865. It is converted as museum with lot of antique items. It has got Jewelleries, Weapons, Vehicles and lot more kept for viewers. It is not at all maintained and should have been taken care in better way. Must watch and spent time.

It is one of the earliest archeological museums in Kerala.There are lot of gems from the 1800's and 1900's,but the upkeep is so pathetic.The staff are the least courteous and are arrogant at most times.The most upsetting part is the so called 'Deer park' where 50+ deers and other ruminates suffer.The deer park must be relocated for the sake of...
