Mattancherry Palace, also known as the Dutch Palace, is a significant historical landmark located in Kochi, Kerala. Built by the Portuguese in the 16th century as a gift for the King of Cochin, it was later renovated by the Dutch in the 17th century, hence the name Dutch Palace.

The architecture of the palace is a beautiful blend of traditional Kerala style and European influence. The palace features a quadrangular courtyard surrounded by a two-storyed building. The wooden ceilings and sloping roofs adorned with intricate carvings and murals, make it an excellent example of the architectural brilliance of that time.

The palace houses a rich collection of historical artifacts, paintings, and artifacts. The main attraction of the palace is the murals, which depict scenes from the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata. The murals also showcase the life and times of the former kings of Kochi, their lifestyles, and the customs and traditions prevalent during their reign.

Another highlight of the palace is the Coronation Hall, where the kings of Kochi were crowned. The hall features a magnificent throne made of rosewood and decorated with ivory and gold. Visitors can also witness a display of traditional Kerala weapons and musical instruments at the palace.

Apart from its historical significance, the palace is also renowned for its stunning gardens, which house a variety of exotic plants and trees. The gardens are a perfect spot for visitors to relax and take a stroll amidst the natural beauty.
