It was built by the Portuguese, and presented to the Raja of Cochin in 1555. Though built by the Portuguese, it is popularly known as the 'Dutch Palace', as the Dutch renovated it during their brief reign here. The glory of the Palace lies in the murals which are in the traditions of Hindu Temple Art. Your tour will continue with a visit to the Jewish synagogue (closed on Friday noon & Saturday).

It was an amazing tour, a complete long day journey with full of fun and beautiful memories. Globe travels had arranged every thing very well, and just because of them our trip become such a memorable. During whole trip their guide tells us everything about the famous things and places and I can really say that he was a knowledgeable person. Kottakavu Church was our centre of attraction, a church of Syrian Christian community of Kerala. Not only this, every place during the trip, has their own attraction and we glad to have this pleasure. For this I would like to thanks Globe travels, to give us their helping services.

Just as we reached to the port, we were welcomed by members of Globe travel, and this is kindly heart touching. From that point we started our trip and travel to various heritage places like Malabar Jews, Kottakavu Church, St. Thomas Paliam Palace and lot of other heritage places. Handloom Weaving factory was really having a good attraction to us with their beautiful cotton materials. This whole trip was full of mixtures of cultures and traditional foods of Kerala. It felt so happy and glad to being there and really enjoyed a lot. At last, thank you so much Globe travels to make our trip so amazing and fun.
