Krishnapuram Palace In Alleppey

A rare specimen of the Kerala style of architecture, Krishnapuram Palace in Alleppey is a palace-cum-museum located in Kayamkulam Alappuzha district. The structure is complete with gabled roofs, narrow corridors, and dormer windows. Built in the 18th century by the erstwhile Travancore king Marthanda Varma Maharaja, the palace is today a protected monument under the Archaeology Department.

The traditional architecture of this palace attracts thousands of tourists every year. In addition to its architecture, Krishnapuram Palace has a mural depicting the story of Gajendra Moksham (salvation of elephant). Dating back to the 18th century, this exquisite piece of art is one of the largest murals in India and is a fantastic blend of colours and expressions. This 16-block palace is also famous for its museum that houses antiques, sculptures, paintings, weapons, megalithic remains, stone inscriptions, coins and artifacts in bronze.

Situated on a small hilltop, Krishnapuram Palace is surrounded by a terraced garden with fountains, ponds and lawns. The garden was recently renovated in accordance with the scientific techniques prescribed for the protection of heritage monuments.

While there are several statues inside the museum, the one that attracts the most attention is the statue of Buddha kept in a chamber in the garden. This single piece statue is more than a thousand years old. The museum also has a Bible in Sanskrit that dates back to 1886.<READMORE>

The palace and the museum are open between 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on all days except Mondays.

    Overall nice trip except two hotels were below average , specially blue moon hotel in munnar . Cab was nice , driver was good but they refuge to take me to athirapalli waterfall saying that it is not in itinerary ,i show them your quote but they were adamant, finally mr. Rakesh somehow convinced th
    em . But everything must be cleared before a trip. If you say three star hotel then stick to it otherwise it leaves bad impression for your company. Bamboo Dale munnar and house boat Alleppey were excellent.

    Anwaaruddin's 6 days trip to Alleppey

    The trip was amazing. Munnar: It is an exceptionally great location and hotel was also very good. One can spend 2-3 days here itself. Kundala lake is a must go place. We had a great experience at hotel as view had a nice water fall and food was also good here. Elephant ride was nice. Dreamland adve
    nture park was good experience. Thekkady: It was good. Hotel was ok. Off road safari was ok. Cultural centre is a nice experience specially Kalaripayattu show. Kovalam: Weather was nice when we were here and hotel was great. It is a nice place to experience local food. Golden sand beach is scenic and a must go. You can skip the boat ride if you don't want to go but it was good. Alleppey: House boat is ok but the experience was nice. If you want any fish to have on the boat better buy it on the road because the fish is on the lake is very expensive. Boat ride makes it cool and breezy.

    What is special about the Krishnapuram Palace?

    The Krishnapuram Palace is a rare specimen of the Kerala style of architecture. It houses a mural, the theme of which is mythological and depicts an elephant saluting Lord Vishnu in devotion while the other gods, goddesses, and saints look on. This mural was placed at the entrance to the palace from the pond to enable the rajas to worship the deity after their bath.

    What other attractions does Krishnapuram Palace have other than the mural?

    Other attractions here include the beautifully landscaped garden in the palace compound where you have a variety of flora typical of Kerala, and a newly erected Buddha mandapam, which houses a recently recovered statue of Buddha. There are other collections at the museum including rare bronze sculptures and paintings that visitors take great interest in.
