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.

  • Good wooden work, heritage site, take time to visit. Usual attitude from the employees as they feel government job and treat you like servant. Many things replaced with current materials.
