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.
