Padmanabhapuram Palace - Review
The Padmanabhapuram Palace is actually located at the southern tip of Tamil Nadu but is interestingly looked after by the Kerela Government instead. The building with its clay roof and old architecture itself is beautiful and elegant. It has been simply decorated. Unlike lavish and tall palaces in other parts of the country this place has a very rustic feel to it. There is a 300 year old clock that adorns the place and surprisingly still works. Besides, there are a lot of historic and cultural artefacts that have been put on display in this place.
The Palace is home to a lot of History. It was constructed by the then king of the region of Venad and still holds a special place in the history of south India. The Palace is the perfect destination for the culture seeker, the history lover and the art lover as well. It is sure to give you a beautiful insight into the history and lifestyle of the old life in this region. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kanyakumari itinerary 1 day.

Padmanabhapuram Palace, Kanyakumari Reviews
One of the most unique and special palaces in the world, by far. Considering it's completely made of wood, it's am absolutely incredible feat of design and engineering. Take a guide and learn about the palace in detail. There's ample parking and public transport is available too.
One of the most important place that could be visited by the travellers who were on their way to Kanyakumari. Noon time will be the best to visit there. Ethnic beauty. Their beds and rest rooms were the interesting factors.
A nice place to visit. We can find people in most of the places to share information about the palace & particular sections. The whole palace has intricate wooden carvings. Well maintained place. The place closes by 17:00hrs as there is no artificial lighting.
A place of heritage and classic culture. The place is decorated with many artifacts, each with history and a story. Been there 3 or 4 times but it a few years back then the only problem i saw is the hygiene of the toilets which could have been better. The service of guides were also useful.it is a best place all category of people but the problem is that you have to walk a bit especially steps which are steep so please choose this site keeping this in mind
Another must go place. Awesome architecture that manages to be simple and inconspicuous as well as breathtaking and intricate at the same time. A wonderful place to visit
