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.

This is centuries old palace losing it's beauty as years pass by. Administration should consider to safeguard it better. No water point inside the palace and plastic bottles are not allowed inside.
A great wooden architecture that is maintained in a very good condition. The architecture is really very beautiful. The single basement pillar made of jack fruit tree wood is a wonder. King's wooden cot depicting history and the Indo-China wooden work is noteworthy. There are beautiful paintings that cover the events that took place during the king's rule. There is entrance fee and do take tickets for camera. They strictly adhere to timings. It takes more than 2 hours if you are interested in art and architecture.
Very interesting place. Historical place. Guides are very good in service. They explains the history well. Well maintained.
Very good old heritage. Must visit. Great archtecture and is maintained properly. Entry fee and camera charges are quite high.
