Bolghatty Island

Bolghatty Island situated in the Cochin of Kerala. This island is famous for the Bolghatty Palace built by the Dutch in 1744 AD. The location of the palace is such that it provides an awe-inspiring view of the backwaters all around. Today it is a hotel run by the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation, with a small golf course and special honeymoon cottages. To reach the Island one can take a ferry ride from the mainland Ernakulam, which is a pleasing experience.
