Thirumalai Nayak Palace is the royal palace of Madurai, built by the king of the Madurai's Nayaka dynasty, King Thirumalai Nayak. The king ruled Madurai from 1623 to 1659, and the palace was built in the year 1636. Boasting of a fusion of architectural artwork, the designs display Dravidian as well as Rajput styles. The palace was originally much larger than what we see today, and was also one of the wonders of the South in its peak. The history of this architectural oeuvre is interesting, as is its designs and art. The palace was declared as a National Monument, and a visit to this historic site is a must. You can also schedule your visit here based on the timing of the light and sound show, if you want to live the story of the place through this beautiful media. Enjoy!
