Bolgatty Palace



          Bolgatty Palace is located on the Bolgatty Island in Kochi. Bolgatty Palace Originally built by Dutch traders in 1744 and it is the oldest of its kind that exists outside Holland. It is an island of calm right in the midst of the bustling City of Kochi.

          One of the oldest existing Dutch palaces outside Holland, this quaint mansion, built in 1744, by Dutch traders, was later extended and gardens were landscaped around it. The building was then the Governor's palace for the commander of Dutch Malabar, and later in 1909 was leased to the British. It served as the home of the British Governors, being the seat of the British Resident of Cochin during the British regime.

          In 1947, when India obtained independence, the palace became the property of the state and was later converted into a heritage hotel resort. Bolgatty Palace now has a swimming pool, 9-hole golf course, ayurvedic centre and daily Kathakali performances and is a holiday destination for Indian and overseas tourists.


          There is in a temple dedicated to Shiva that is the first of its kind in Kerala. The other centre of attraction in this property is Kochi International Marina and Bolgatty Event Centre.
