We wished to visit the small temples within, but it was annoying that they did not allow Muslims to get in. Not a fair treatment I'd say.

Small but good collection of artifacts and fairly maintained history. You get glimpse of the Royalty of Kerala when you step into this place.

If you are in or around Kochi, visiting the Hill Palace would be a great 2-hours spend. Great location, nice gardens, architecture and buildings.
