Restored Secret-Palace for the King

Paliam Palace is a restored royal residence and living quarters which belonged to the king during 16th century. During Portuguese rule, to escape from the atrocities, this was built for the Raja (king of Cochin) to stay safely.One can get here via the Hop-on Hop-off boat, as a part of the Muziris Heritage Project. It takes about 20mins by boat and a 10minute walk to reach here.There is a small entry fee of Rs 50, and it is advised that you carry hats & water as it can the journey can get really exhausting.Definitely worth a visit if you are around Kochi.Cameras are not allowed, but you may use your phone for pictures.

Paliam Palace Chendamangalam Cochin tour

The Paliam Palace can be approached by the get on get off water taxi during the Waterfront Tours. During the worst days of Portuguese atrocities in the 16th century, even the Raja of Cochin was not safe. The then, Paliath Valiachan, the Prime Minister of Cochin, ensured the safety of the Raja by escorting him to Chendamangalam. The Raja is believed to have stayed incognito in a place near Kalari and hence the name Kovilakam or Palace. Later the building was renovated by the Dutch. The Dutch influence in the design and architecture of the building is quite evident. Now the dynasty has handed over to Heritage maintenance. The tour guides offered refreshing coconut water and explained all three floors of every artifact that was used by the dynasty. Rich inheritance and culture is evident. Carry an umbrella and be prepared to walk and wear good shoes when using a water taxi. Don't miss the destination, as you will have many to choose from. Steeped in history you will get lessons of how India evidently became independent. Very inspirational trip.
