The entrance is just 5 rupees. Photo inside. This Palace is not as gorgeous as it is instructive. Mural from the epic Mahabharata, indeed, antiquities is not very much. But I was struck by the pictures of rulers and the Athenians of Kerala. Relationship among indigenous tribes were matrilineal, and women have their power. Although officially radzha usually nephew, who led a monastic life. The photo of the beginning and the middle of the twentieth century, women were topless Princess. That is, if they are so formally posed on one group, and it was accepted. Not explicitly, Belle let locals will forgive me. As my head until the picture is emerging.
