This is located at Thripunithura in one part of the city.

Ornaments and jewelry of kings are kept for display inside a protected room with modern surveillance equipments. Mobile phones are not allowed inside this room.
Entry fee to the palace is Rs 11 for adults and Rs 7 for children of 5-12 years old. Ordinary ( still ) camera entry fee is Rs 20 and Video camera is Rs 1500 ( yes bit high ).
