Built by the Dutch in India , Bolgatty palace is located on the island popularly known as Bolgatty island In kochi, kerala. 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 idependance, the palace became the property of the state and was later converted into a heritage hotel resort.
