The entrance fee is so small that it would be a shame not to see this if you are in the area. Not much inside but ...

“Interesting Palace”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Very interesting place - had to duck a few times going through low doors. Very very different from the palaces up north India but these have their own charm. Love to hear about the old Maharajah days

“For the art lovers”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Good paintings of Ramayana and Mahabharata are well maintained in the palace. The history of Cochin, the stamp and coin collection can interest those who have a taste for such details.

“Historical again”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The Palace is made in dutch architecture and belonged to Hindu rulers of Kerala. Displaying articals used by rulers at that time. This palace is now a protected monument. Nothing much interesting. Can be interesting for foreigners because of wall paintings.

If you are with family - A big no no...
