  • This is best place to spend an evening. Situated at heart of the city at North (Vadakke) Bus stand. It is an old palace now converted into museum. At nominal fee, you will allowed to enter  more »
  • Wonderful museum experience and the guides was very helpful .The garden was so greeny and provided a different level of calmness really good people pls try  more »
  • Ideal place for those who loves ancient cultures and interested to know about the lifestyle of royal families. Govt. had taken good initiative to preserve the palace as such by maintaining the architectural structures. The museum is very much attractive. The compound is very peaceful even though it is in the center of the city. Parking is some difficult during peak hours however we can park the vehicles near the stadium. We can use footwear inside the palace.
  • Wonderful experience that i get from here.. Very calm place well maintained.. Lot of historical information will get from this place.. Photography not allowed only in the museum.. A big garden was there.. That was also such an amazing place should visit..
