The hill palace is one of the largest attractions in terms of area in cochin. You can easily spent half a day here. The exhibition that I enjoyed the most is the jewellery one where you can see the crown also. You also have the carriages, coins, old scriptures and furnitures around. The only thing they could have done is... More

The palace atop a hill boasts rare collections of carriages, jewellery, musical instruments, furniture used by the Kochi royals. The tour links from palace to palace, so you get to see all the palaces and admire the architecture up close. Sundays and the days there is a... More

I was happily surprised by this attraction. The grounds are quite expansive with quite a few outbuildings, fountains, pools(dry), orchids to wander around and enjoy. Trees and shade are plentiful. The main buildings house the museum- carriages, jewellery, portraits, coins, weapons, old old writings... There is limited info on the exhibits and a map/guide book was unfortunately not available( I... More

It is a large park area with beautiful old trees, with the Hill Palace at the peak of the hillside park. The park could be impressive and the Hill Palace could be a pearl, but visibly only the very barest minimum of upkeep is being done, so the true grandeur of the of the whole area is largely lost. It... More

This could potentially have been an excellent attraction if only it was better maintained. Similar story of most of the attractions in India. The environs around are very good and there some interesting collections. Needs proper maintenance to make it a major attractions. As it is, it is okay for a visit if one is in the area and has...
