Must visit place in Allepey. The museum has hundreds of very beautiful artifacts mostly made up of ivory and crystals. Ivory collection is simply awesome. You could also see all kinds of swaroski crystals from beautiful peacock to lord ganesha to wild animals to flowers. Crystals are beautifully carved and a delight to eyes !!
