Kerala Travelogue: The Staircase

I discovered this curvaceous beauty in the Bolghatty Palace located on the Bolghatty Islands in Cochin.

This palace was built by the Dutch traders in 1744 as a villa. The palace was leased to the British in 1909, who turned it into a residence for the British governors. In 1947, after India gained her independence, it became the property of the state. It now stands transformed into a heritage hotel resort – Hotel Bolghatty Palace. It is now under the administration of the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC).

The palace is very tastefully decorated in wood and every corner of it has a royal feel to it. One morning while exploring the two storey building of this palace I came across this beautiful wooden staircase at one end of the hotel. It was shining in the morning sun like long, smooth, and  silky hair of a young woman.

Here are some more photos of that curvaceous beauty for you.
