Mattancherry Dutch Palace is the finest example of the fusion of colonial influences with Kerala style of architecture. This Palace was constructed by the Portuguese with four buildings set around a quadrangle which is known as Nalukettu and was gifted to the King Veera Kerala Verma of Kochi. Later this Palace was renovated by the Dutch. Since then, it came to be known as the Dutch Palace. And now it is one among the most visited place in Mattancherry. This palace houses a small temple dedicated to the Pazhayannur Bhagavathy which is the major attraction here.
