A Palace under renovation

We visited the Palace on 2nd Jan 2015. Took about 1hr to reach from Palayam. Located nearby Nedumangad KSRTC Bus station. Unfortunately only after reaching there, we came to know about its Renovation work. The Palace was under renovation since the last of 2014. It would have better if someone reported it earlier in a review.

Very calm place to watch history

This is one of the relatively smaller palace built in the Travancore. Just a five minutes walk from Nedumangad Town will take you to Koyikkal Palace. It is a very calm place and you can spend time here watching history without so much rush of tourists. It is a good place to visit if you are going through Nedumangad to either Ponmudi or Kulathupuzha.
