Bolghatty Palace

Bolghatty Palace built by the Dutch in 1744 is the pride of the beautiful Bolghatty Island, situated in the Kochi heritage city of Kerala. Today, this is one of the prestigious hotels of the KTDC. The location of the palace is such that it provides an awe-inspiring view of the backwaters all around.
