If you interested in ancient scripts and carvings on rocks along with the inscriptions done on palm leaves, you should visit here..The place has Hindu epics written on old palm leaves strips tied together, which was used instead of books at that times..

Here you can see the swords, Knives, and other weaponary used by the maharaja of cochin. Their are so many chariots and vehicles used at that time exhibited their. The architecture of the palace is astonishing with wooden spiral stairs, marbled and tiled floors etc.

Something strange i met out their was an iron casting in the shape of human body in the dungeon. It was hanged out and the purpose it was used for was more strange..Written out their that the culprits are locked in the hanging iron casting and starved to death in the dark room. Cant even think of such a punishment...
