  • One of the major historical attraction of Kerala situated in the nedumangad town. It's the museum of ancient coins. It is re developed by the government last year. Calm and quite place. You can visit and study about the palace history. The Mondays are the usual holidays of palace. Another important thing is , you can see the starting place of a secret underground cave from the palace.
  • The Koyikkal Palace is near to Nedumangadu junction and it has a decent parking area. The two-storey palace is more of a museum than of a palace that can boast of grand architecture. It houses ancient coins, weapons, tools used by carpenters, masonry and other household items. The guides in the palace are helpful and navigate you well through the museum. Overall it is a worth visit if you want to know about the items used by our forefathers.
