This is a small museum but given the Dutch input into the area, it is well worth a visit. The frescoes and pictures need someone who can tell you the stories associated with them. We went about 12md and found we had plenty of time...More

I expected a lot out of this place. I was very disappointed to see that the palace is not well maintained. The priests in the temples inside the palace were very rude. Their mission is to make some money from the visitors. Most of the...More

This is a very interesting must see. The entrance fee is 5 rupees. It helps to have a guide. Look for the fish in the pond outside which you can feed.

Lots of very old paintings, carvings, photos and stories of the Rajas in Cochin. Entrance only 5 rupees (6p). Quite a small exhibition which can be done in about 30 minutes. To be honest it wasn't really my thing, but if you're in to history...More

Big wooden elephant welcomes you to the palace. The architecture is superb. The palace is very cold from inside. Each and every room has some story to say. The artefacts are preserved well.
