Kunjali Marakkar Museum

The Kunjali Marakkar Museum is the old house of a legendary warrior of yore who fought valiantly against the Portuguese army. Marakkar was the honoured title bestowed upon the family of valorous fighters, who were the admirals of the Zamorin's fleet. Kunjali Marakkar was the most famous of them all. He fought valiantly against the Portuguese army and the Portuguese were able to capture him only through treachery. After his defeat he was imprisoned and later, beheaded in Goa.

The Kunjali Marakkar Museum is located about five kilometres from Payyoli, at Kottakkal near Puthanpadam. Some of the prominent displays include the sword used by Kunjali Marakkar, cannon balls and some other war relics belonging to the period of the Zamorins.
