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.
- Tips & Warnings: King Marthaanda Varma had devoted the kingdom to the deity of his family belief and faith- Sree Padmanabha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and led the kingdom as Padmanabha dasa or servant of Lord Padmanabha. Subsequently the name had been derived as Padmanabhapuram or City of Lord Padmanabha.

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.
Antique is all I can say about this place. Very old and still very strong. The whole palace can be covered within an hour and for photography you can spend another hour. So if you want to spend two hours with good photographs this place is suitable. Check some of my clicks 😉
Historical palace maintained very well Students Must visit to see the rich cultural heritage of India and legacy of Indian kings. It takes almost half day to go around the full palace. Don't be in hurry else it will be futile visit.
One of Very Unique Forts of many I've visited. Takes you back in time and amazes you with it's most distinguished & creative wood work & traditional Kerala style of architecture. Completely a different experience & gives you a fresh perspective about palaces.
