Thirumalain Nayakar Mahal, Madurai Reviews
One of the well maintaining historical place in Tamil Nadu. I went for light and audio show and they telecasting English version at 6.45pm and Tamil version at 8pm on daily basis. They are explaining history very nicely and everyone can understood. because the audio volume is too good and it is amazing to get 3D sound in open atmosphere. It was a wonderful experience here and must visit place for all... I love it
Totally surprised (pleasantly) by this place. The architecture here is stunning, and really unique. I don't think there is any other place in India, built in this European style. High ceilings, pillars so broad, even Mr. Fantastic wouldn't be able to get his hands around them, and sculptures embedded along the walls. Sadly though, pigeons have invaded this place, making it somewhat dirty, and as expected, our own fellow Indians have desecrated the pillars with senseless writings. But definitely, worth more than 1 visit.
Thirumalai Nayakkar Palace is one of the famous & historic monuments in Madurai. Thirumalai Nayakkar Palace is located nearby Meenakshi temple. Ancient and huge pillars. Beautiful sculpture. There is a big stone used to build up pillars. The ceilings are quite beautifully painted with lovely repeating patterns. The museum artifacts add to the experience. Maintenance is very poor. People who are visiting Madurai must go and visit this place and I am sure they will find it much interesting and grand building of Madurai. The palace is open for public till 5 pm and evening light shows are amazing and please don't miss it. A pleasant surprise and well worth visiting.
It's an amazing monument. The heights to which this has been built is something you can keep admiring throughout. Wish it had better maintenance. There is a light and sound show which happens in both English and Tamil.
Good architecture. You can find a museum inside the palace. There is nothing you can find about the king and how he lived. No information on how the kingdom was run. I only recommend this place if u have lot of time left in your trip . You can skip this place if you are in shortage of time.
