Kochi offers abundant hospitality options, including a dense collection of international five-star hotels. Travelers on a budget can explore the selection of modest but impeccable homestays and guesthouses in the quieter neighborhoods just outside the central tourist area of Fort Cochin; these make great places to meet local hosts and fellow travelers.

  • Entry fee is Rs.30. Definitely worth more than that. Big. Not really a hill, tiny but gives that feel. Park in the front is good. No photography allowed inside museum. At the exit of the museum there is a walking track which has interesting stone dinosaurs.
  • It was a real treat to know how prosperous and luxurious our kings were. At times it's quite unbelievable when we compare the splendid architecture with its age
  • Good place for a day out.. Fresh air and lot of area to walk and relax. One of the Very nice view is the deers over there and then the architecture and royal look of the Palace, garden etc. No good facility for food or water inside. Royal belongings or weapons are just one 2 pices each. Small play area is there but not maintained well.
  • One of the famous and beautiful palace with museum during the AD 1800 period. Beautifully maintained garden and old articles are the specialty.
  • Crown Jewels should be shown on more days of the week. Should have more guides, more enthusiasm shown by the personnel. Can however see that the authorities have realized that this place definitely has great potential to be a leading tourist attraction, should be advertised more
