Mattancherry Palace (Dutch Palace) Travel

The Mattancherry Palace is a beautiful palace that was originally built by the Portuguese. It was during the 17th century that the Dutch took it over. They modified it and then presented it to the Raja of Kochi. Because of this gift, it is now often referred to as the Dutch Palace. The coronations of many Rajas of Kochi were held here throughout the years.

There is an outstanding collection of mural paintings found inside. These murals beautifully depict scenes from the Hindu epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. The paintings are colorful and artistic in their representation and are one of the wonders of India.
