This is a really great and huge palace where you feel like you are being transferred to the era of King's rule. A must visit.

Another run down disappointment. Well past its heyday, virtually unmaintained for many years, a distinct lack of interesting artifacts, this tourist highlight is diappointing, unless you lower your expectations. Don't waste your money on a tour to this location. You will want to leave within an hour.

This was my second visit to the hill palace. It was terribly disappointgin to see the sad state of the palace and its upkeep. Indeed a valuable part of our history and what they have to offer the tourists is nothing worth. Most of the artifacts are seen in other places also, but what is unique here is badly maintained.

The landscaping and architecture have brought beauty to otherwise a simple and small hillock. The winding but short road taing to the palace from the main road itself is well laid. Awesome wood carvings and exhibits kept in the palace make us feel present there in the past. The curved deisgns with pillars and many spacious halls with interconnecting passages... More

What a magnificent place this must have been in the time of the Maharajah. What once would have been a splendid place of beauty is now sadly faded. Many areas are very much in need of refurbishment, however budgets/government monies are not available to carry out this restoration. There is very few furnishing inside so it is hard to imagine...

While this palace is very impressive on the outside, the winding paths leading up to it, the grand stairs and landscape. I was saddened looking at the state of the place. The potential to really get a feel for Kochi royalty, culture and tradition really was a bit lost. The interiors of the place were at bare minimum, sadly with... More
