Mattancherry Palace

Chang La is located in Ladakh at a height of 17,590ft. It is among world's highest motorable roads. This high mountain pass lies on the road that leads to the famous Pangong Lake. Tangste is a small town which is at a distance of around 52 km from the pass. There is a temple near the pass called Changla Baba Temple where a lot of tourists tie Tibetan prayer flags and make wishes. An SBI Bank also exists at Changla Pass along with a cafe from where you can get packed food and beverages. Surrounded by panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains, it is a beautiful spot for sightseeing and capturing photographs. Chang La has a treacherous route. It requires an experienced driver to cross the pass. It is also among the favourite spots of bike riders. Beautifully serene and notoriously unpredictable, Changla is a destination meant for all the adventure-seekers.

Right next to Jew Town is the Dutch palace. The Dutch palace was under the Dutch and showcases the history of Kochi, its gradual evolution, and the people that shaped Kochi's history. Also, intricately painted and maintained are the depictions of Ramayana on the walls. This is also a good place to visit and to know the history of the city.

• Mattancherry Palace: From the Jew Street, I headed to the Mattacherry Palace or the Dutch Palace. Built and gifted in 1555 to Veera Kerala Verma, traditionally believed to be the first king of Cochin, by the Portuguese, this palace houses murals, portraits, stamps, artilleries, coins, and many more exhibits of the Rajas of Cochin. Soak yourself in the colonial influence within the walls of this palace.o Timings: Open on all days except Friday(10.00 AM to 5.00 PM)o Entry Ticket: Required

Its a boutique hotel and extremely pretty. I have booked it earlier via Expedia.com and check in was fuss-free. Later in the noon, after a delicious lunch at the Spice Fort Hotel Kochi, which is located at princess street, the place for shopping, I headed for Jewish Synagogue and Dutch palace or Mattancherry Palace. If you want to visit all historical places, I would suggest you to start your journey from princess street because all historical places are adjacent to it.
