Puthenmalika Palace Museum Reviews & Ratings
Visit along wth guide.. Gives us good idea of the minute things which we will miss in the abs of guide...
Built in the 1840s by the great Maharaja Swathi Thirunal, the Kuthira Malika Palace stands as an iconic monument that gives you a curious insight into the glorious history of Kerala. 'Kuthira Malika' literally translates to 'Mansion of horses', and it has been named so because of the 122 horses that adorn the many pillars that support the southern roof of this majestic structure. The main idea behind building this palace was to preserve and promote the many traditional art forms of India, mainly the south.
A must visit if in Trivandrum. The ticket price included a guided tour of the palace. Only 1/4th of the palace is open to public... The rest is closed and not maintained... The artifacts were well maintained and mind blowing.. Parking is limited in the street, therefore advisable to take taxi or autorickshaw....
Located right outside the Padmanabhaswamy Temple, it is a part of the Kuthiramalika Palace and was constructed by Maharaja Swathi Thirunal Balarama Varma in 19th century who wanted to showcase the traditional Indian art forms. As you enter, you would see the typical Kerala-style architecture (Travancore) adorning portraits of the royal family and some beautiful wooden carvings. Entrance Fee INR 10 (Adult), INR 3 (Child); INR 15 (Camera for exterior walls only) nb;Entre fee can be vary
