Located in the banks of a river, you can reach there enjoying in a house boat. Surrounded by coconut groove, looks awesome. Never miss this beautiful Palace.

This palace may not be having bright future since it utilized as the head quarters of NCC and well as military canteen. Not at all maintained as a heritage place which is a sad thing. Needs permission to enter as it is under control of defense and ncc
