Impressive structure with a great history. Beware though that at the ticket window at the bottom of the hill, if you have paid for your camera, you will not be allowed to use it inside the palace. The camera is allowed to be used only outside in the grounds around the palace!

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.

The 'palace' sits above terraced gardens and there is a park with pretty spotted deer in it, and a fibreglass dinosaur nearby, so there is some child-appeal. There are several architectural styles but parts f the building are quite dilapidated and the museums inside are not particularly exciting.

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

When visiting the Kochi maharaja's palace, wear flats and be prepared for a long walk. Once you purchase your ticket near the gates, you are faced with 2 options to reach the palace - the long winding road up or the nearly hundred red steps leading to the door of the palace.
