Good to visit.

Surprisingly there are not many historical sites here by this one will suffice for all you history buffs. Once a palace used by Royal family I now houses a museum.

Hill Palace is the largest archaeological museum in Kerala. If you want to go back to history and learn more about previous kerala maharaja's do make a visit. So many antiques to see, Gold ornaments etc. There is also a giant dinosaur statue and a deer park.

You will never think about time if you wandering around the museum. If you are a malayali (mallu) , you can recollect lots of scenes from movies.

The museum should have been in the limelight for the extensive layout and artifacts it depicts. Rarely promoted and lesser know this is a very good museum to see when you are in Kerala
