Though a very old palace, I felt this is being well maintained and the guide did a wonderful job of explaining each and every item that we came across in the museum. The most impressive ones were the chairs made out of ivory and imported crystal. Yet another useful place of tourist attraction.

Kuthiramalika is an excellent place which shows the ancient architecture during maharajah time. it is sad to see that the palace is not maintained properly. Out of 80 rooms the guide told us that only 20 rooms are opened for public. Other 60 rooms are perishing lack of maintenance.

Gives a peek into the architectural and cultural heritage of Kerala and life in the royal palaces in the previous era.
Lovely

At East Fort entrance road to Shri Padmanabaswami temple; have to wait for quite some time for a guide, as we cannot go inside on our own; but good experience in looking at the beautiful palace. Also, please do not forget to visit the Photo Palace museum, which is inside the main Puthenmalika palace.
