What travellers are saying
- Lots of work has been done to improve the cleanliness and look of the temple. Steps to Kil Kavvil has be laid nicely.
Queue system is good, but you should put the timings as when the Nda will be opened or announce it often. Devotees with Children will benefit if they know when the queue will start moving.
Information centre can be provided for visitors to know much about the Chotanikara temple. Lots of different states people are coming. This time I guided some team as they were struggling to know the basic things, and they were all from Andhra.
Thanks to the management as they are doing continous improvements for the betterment of the devotees.Written 26 July 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- A must-visit place when you visit Fort Kochi. A prime attraction for tourists in the Kochi region. Most people don't realise the Dutch influence on India until they come to this place. This palace with a nice view is well-maintained and has a unique collection. It's not air-conditioned and can get hot inside. The entrance fee is just Rs 5. Weekends draw huge crowds and traffic congestion. The exterior boasts vast, beautifully maintained lawns.
The palace, serving as a museum, is a beautiful architectural delight. The old palace vibe is well-preserved. Only a part is open to tourists, detailed with intricate ceilings, windows, doors, and woodwork what sets the palace apart is its stunning mural paintings, depicting scenes from the Ramayana and Mahabharata, as well as portraits of the Kochi royal family. The vibrant colours and intricate detailing offer a fascinating insight into Kerala's artistic heritage. The palace is approximately 1 km walk from Fort Kochi jetty.
Architecture lovers will appreciate the gorgeous detailing of the works in the palace and the interiors are photogenic. No photos are allowed in some rooms with murals. There is a UPI ticket payment option. Open parking is available with restricted access to specific sections. It shares a wall with Pazhayannur Mahavishnu Temple.

- The church is open in spite of ongoing renovations. This church was founded by the Portuguese, later Dutch took over destroying all the Catholic paintings and decorations. Subsequently British took over . And now this is governed by the Church of Southern India. The construction temporarily brought in some chaos. The original tomb of Vasco da Gama is here. The remains were later taken back to his Portuguese homeland.Written 15 March 2023

- The demon Khara who had got three Sivalingams from Lord Shiva Himself, carried them down to the south. One in each hand and one round his neck, he lay down to take rest. When he woke up, the three Sivalingams were firmly established where he kept them. The one round his neck was Kaduthuruthy Thaliyil Mahadeva. (Vaikom and Ettamanoor being the other two places). This temple has a serene and calm atmosphere, the Mahadeva of Vaikom and Ettamanoor are also present here and that adds immensely to the positive energy of this place.Written 23 May 2022

- Since it is a major temple dedicated to Goddess Saraswati, it is a popular pilgrimage centre which gets overcrowded during the Navaratri season. It is not very big but the way the temple is maintained and the crowd managed is exemplary. The temple has a very eco friendly approach in handling the puja items with the plates of puja materials getting recycled and reused while all packaging is done with non coated paper. Now to move on to the main deity. The Saraswati idol is quite small but radiates quite a bit of energy. Personally, although I had packed my breakfast for eating on the way back, I did not have a feeling of hunger at all. That kind of energy is not felt in many temples. As is the norm, there is a Vinayaka shrine near the main shrine. The upadevas in the outer ring has a unique shrine to Lord Veerabhadra. The temple pond as well as the temple open well are quite well maintained. The Travancore Devaswom Board should ensure that the devotees do not throw flowers and such degradeable matter in to these excellent water bodies.Written 8 October 2019
