“Go if you like to read plaques”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

The palace is mostly full of plaques that explain life in the olden days in the province of Kerala. There are some artifacts as well but you don't actually get to see much of the palace itself (or see it laid out the way it would have been when it was being used). It's okay, just be ready to stand and read a lot.

“good place”

especially likes the murals inside the place, if there are too many tourists just wander around and go back to the busy room again
