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 best maintained palaces I have seen. The museum could use a little help in displaying the historical artifacts, but nonetheless, it still stands high on glory. Plus you actually have guides stationed in important rooms, so one does not need to pay extra for a tour guide. Pointers: If you want to take pictures inside the palace, you need to pay for using camera at the ticket counter.

  • Excellent place to see. Big palace. People are there every where to explain, say about the rooms Raja lived. Maintained very neat. But have to walk a lot. Not suitable for elderly and sick. Snacks and food available out side. Shopping available. Camera and phone charged extra.

  • The palace exhibits the architectural marvel of the ancient days. The artworks are really great and one can wonder about it as they have many different designs and are carved on teak wood. Even the rooftops and the sidewalls are having well-crafted artworks. The negative side of it is that the maintenance is poor especially the floors and there is no light fixed, so rooms are dark at some places

  • Amazing property but entry fee is a bit too much especially since they charge for photography. Well maintained. Staff is also super active.

  • Marvelous 16th century wooden palace . The hosts welcome us warmly and lead us into the palace giving a brief description about the palace and the kings. Once inside the palace, there are hosts in each room to explain about the room and the furniture in there. The palace itself is extraordinarily built almost entirely with wood. The carving on the wood is simply astonishing! It would cost millions or probably billions to get such work done today! Almost every inch of wood is carved into flowers or other decorative shapes. Must visit and one-of-a-kind palace in India.
