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.

Barely anything to see, very poorly maintained, only the garden is worth to visit. Camera no allowed inside so you might not want to pay to carry yours ( 50 roupies) The deer park is fun to see with kids.

This is an old palace & is popular in Cochin. It was crowded & this palace is unique with different & interesting architecture. A large collection of ancient antiquities are kept here. A must visit for ancient architecture lovers.

We were there on a Saturday, and the palace and grounds were bustling full - it seems to be a popular local day trip. The palace is in reasonable shape, and it is interesting to walk through the series of rooms and imagine the daily life that existed there into the 20th century. The treasures in the Treasure Room are... More
