The 200-year-old palace of the Travancore maharajas has carved wooden ceilings, marble sculptures and even imported Belgian glass. Inside you’ll find Kathakali images, an armoury, portraits of maharajas, ornate thrones and other artefacts. Admission includes a 45-minute guided tour, though you can skip that and just visit the outside of the palace grounds (free), where you'll also find the Chitrali Museum (₹50), a newly opened section of the palace containing loads of historical memorabilia, photographs and portraits from the Travancore dynasty.

An annual classical music festival is held here in January.
