“Small museum”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Nothing much to see, it took us a max of 10 minutes to walk around and see the exhibits. The road leading to the palace was also very bad and congested.

“Dutch Palace”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This palace is also known as the Dutch Palace. This palace was build by the Portuguese for the Cochin kings in traditional kerala style architecture. This palace is known for its mural paintings on its walls. It got the name Dutch Palace as they did some renovations and extended it. There is a temple near the palace. The entrance of this palace is called Elephant gate as it big enough for an elephant to go through.

“A supreme experience”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

I saw the palace in company of a guide who show us around and told us some details of the history of the place.
The rich architecture in Kerala is a plus to the discovery.
The weather was hot but pleasant enough to move around.
There was so much to see and beautiful places for photographs.
