Kerala is struggling to find money to support the care of its antiquities and it shows. However this building is cared for with love and contains some really significant piences and history. teh highlight of course for me was the crown given by Vasco Da Gama to the King of Cochin.

Met some lovely local ladies here who sat and chatted with us while we waited for the Palace to open. Check opening times. You can always get a coffee or a bite to eat across the road if you miss time your visit. Lots of interesting exhibits to see.

A nice palace intact with a museum and vast open space provides one with a peek into Kerala history & also a great place for a picnic with children. It provides an educational & recreational experience & complete value for money.
