Arakkal Museum, Kannur Reviews

  • An old palace of Arakkal converted into a museum with a few of their daily utility items and stories and pictures. Though it doesn't look like a grand palaces of rest of India, its humble existence is worth a visit. Decently maintained. Just on the main road. You can click picture inside as well. Enjoy walking on the wooden flooring at first floor.

  • It gives a good insight into the pre independent history of North Kerala during the arrival of Dutch, Portuguese and English people and establishment of their rule and the cooperation as well as the resistance offered by the local people. The only Muslim rulers and their succession history and pattern as well as the unique authority of women rulers is highlighted in this museum. Maybe it can be better organized and managed.

  • History of Arackal Royal family lies here. The one and only Muslim royal family in Kerala. Nice to feel the tradition.

  • its Arakkal Museum, The only Muslim Kingdom in Kerala ever. Take a visit! and while you leave have Tea and Erchipathil from Near by Milma shop. you won't regret it!

  • Old palace of the Arakal family which lived during the pre independence era. The lifestyle and family history is explained by means of exhibits,photos and writings. Nice short trip to know some history . It has a low entry fee of 20 per adult and is worth it. Don't miss this place and give it a short visit on the way just to know abt the history. Very close to the beach area,and is right on the main road. Not crowded and photography is permitted.
