Bolgatty Palace is a former palace made by Dutch on Bolgatty Island, Kochi, and Kerala. One of the oldest Dutch palaces outside Holland, this quaint mansion was built in 1744 by Dutch traders, and later expanded and the gardens were its surroundings. The building was then the governor's palace for the commander of the Dutch Malabar, and in 1909, the British rented it. During British rule, the British resident was the home of British governors as Cochin's location.
In 1947, when India got independence, the palace became the property of the state and it was converted into a heritage hotel resort. Bolgatty Palace has a swimming pool, 9-hole golf course, Ayurvedic center and daily Kathakali exhibition and it is a holiday destination for tourists. There is a temple devoted to Shiva, which is the first of its kind in Kerala.

The famous Bolghatty Palace is located on the beautiful picturesque island, which is known as Bolgatty Island in Kochi, Kerala. Bolgatty Palace was a mansion created by Dutch and is now a Heritage Hotel Resort managed by KTDC.
