Mattancheri Palace

The Mattancheri Palace, often referred to as the Dutch Palace, sits on the eastern side of the Fort Cochin peninsula, facing the city’s harbor. Despite its popular name, the palace was actually constructed by the Portuguese, as a gift for the raja of Cochin, though when the Dutch took control of Cochin in the 17th century they also seized, and then renovated, the palace. It is a rare example of South Indian palace architecture, with its vibrant murals among its most notable features. There is also a small museum on the history of Cochin and its royal family.
