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.

      I took the Kerala trip via sethi travels. This was my 2nd trip through Travel Triangle and it was a great experience. Nitin from Sethi travels helped us planned our trip in a nice manner. Our trip itinerary was as follows : 1. Munnar(2N) : Misty Mountains Resort --> Great place to stay with an amazing view 2. Thekkady(1N) : Coffee Routes Resort --> 10 kms from city, in between the forests; very peaceful and blissful stay 3. Alleppey(1N) : Soma Houseboat --> Heritage room (Dlx) of this houseboat is one of the best budget room, One of the highlights of our trip, Food is okay, an be improved 4. Varkala{1N) : Hindustan Beach Retreat --> Near to the beach 5. Day6 : Varkala --> Kanyakumari (+sightseeing) Planning trip is one part and execution is another, which depends a lot on weather and driver. Fortunately, for us weather was really good and Sethi Travels made sure that driver was Really Really good. Our cab driver (Mr. Shah) was one of the main reason why our trip was so awesome. He guided us a lot during the trip, was very interactive and really helpful. I would also recommend taking elephant bath in Munnar/Thekkady, it would be an experience to remember :)

    Except Monday, the palace is open to tourists all days of the week from 9 AM to 4:30 PM.

    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.

    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.
