Marvelous....a must visit place for anyone one who comes to Cochin and wants to explore some associated history. I was told the darbar hall immediately on entering, is from where the princely state became the first to be signed into the Indian Union. One should try the view from the top balcony. Its very surprising that you can see right... More

Visited in June. Very well maintained museum. Small compared to other museums, but gives a excellent insight into malabar kings & their history. Worth atleast half a day of time. The crown jewels were worth it. But unfortunately permission for photos is denied.

The visit to this place was unscheduled. Reached the place at 1 pm and had to wait for an hour as it was closed. Not so much to say but a quick visit just to see whats in there.

I have been here more than 20 times but still love going there. This might be just me but I highly recommend a visit once. The place gardens are not that great because its not that well flowery. But definitely maintained green. However there is no much effort and investment into making it an awesome view for the tourists. But... More

The jewel museum was unique and interesting; lots of artifacts in gold. Deer park had lots of deers too. Beware of cheaters. We were charged a ticket of 50 bucks for camera in addition... More
