One of the oldest palaces in India. Most of the place is neatly maintained. The lighting within the palace is dull. Guides inside the palace brief the history for tourists. The palace is looked after by the Govt of Kerala.

This is quite an old palace where you can see how the maharaja used to live there. You have to take a ticket first and they charge extra for camera/mobile camera.
