As we like history this place was worth it. It is outside the city of Ernakulam, as recommended by our homestay, we clubbed it with our visit to folklore museum.We used bus service and happy that we made it.

I loved visiting this spot. It was very crowded, but nearly all the visitors the day we were there were local groups and did not seem as if there were other non-Indian visitors. The building is crumbling, and the exhibits are mostly poorly displayed, EXCEPT for the beautiful portraits of a succession of Kochi rulers and their families, and a... More

Being from Kerala, and visiting the hill palace after many years, after having visited to many of the monuments and architectural marvels in and around north india, was disappointed to see the hill palace not being maintained and given the respect it deserves. Govt needs to spend time , money and effort to ensure it doesn't get too late to... More

I have been here twice, once when i was working in KRL along with my colleague and then latest with my wife. This is a historical palace built by the Maharaja of Cochin. The entire place houses an archaeological museum, a heritage museum, a deer park, a pre-historic park and a children’s park. The government should look into the matter... More

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.
