"Palace is great. Enjoyed the guided tour inside the palace. Foot wares are not allowed inside the palace. There is a room for keeping the foot wares. But they charge Rs. 3 for keeping a pair. Better keep the foot ware in your vehicle and come. And I don't know y they taking Rs. 50 as parking fee for roadside parking. If you came by vehicle and you stop by the entrance and confused and looking for a parking area one guy will come and charge you rs.50 for parking and he will direct you to a way which ends in some Street wher you can park at road side.. Better don't go or stop near the entrance. Just Park the vehicle in road side and walk to the palace. Entrance fee for palace is Rs. 35 per HEAD. "

"So serene.. Only 20-30 people are allowed at one time.. And there is visiting timings so check before you go. Great temple but keep a keen eye.. We cannot see the full statue because it is shayana state"

"Excited to saw a 415 year old Palace and most of it are made up of wood. This Palace is in Tamilnadu, but under control of Kerala government. Early days, kings were enjoyed their life, but now a days we are restricted us to 500 ~ 600 sq.feet homes."
