This Palace built by the Artist King Swathi Thrirunal Balarama Varma pays special attention to Travancore Architecture . The carvings and designs of the palace make it an amazing building to observe and appreciate.

The first room that you enter amazes you. The 14 life-size figures from Kerala legends and Kathakali definitely take ones breath away. As you enter the next halls, you see the paintings and collections of the royal family.

Ivory inlaid cots and seats, musical instruments and the tree of Music which produces the seven Swaras are all wonderful.
