Keralam, Museum of History and Heritage in Thiruvananthapuram

 

Kerala’s history is interspersed with the many myths and legends that once held court here. The celestial beings themselves carved out the soul of this land, and today we look back and revere the glorious past of our ancestors. Keralam, a museum of history and heritage in the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram, is a joint venture of Kerala Tourism and the State Department of Archaeology that aims at showcasing the beauty of this land.

One is greeted by a modern display techniques such as touch-screen counters and multimedia systems that explain the artifacts arranged in different galleries. There are regular narrative documentaries on the distinctive facets of Kerala's cultural history. Also on display are archaeological evidences of the Neolithic Age, burial accompaniments belonging to the Iron Age, sculptures of Gods and Goddesses in bronze, wood and stone, coins, murals and many more. Other main attractions include the Roman Dinari (that settled the debate on Kerala’s contact with the Roman Empire), 14th Century Brahma Sculpture, 16th Century Nataraja Sculpture and the 17th Century murals from the Pundarikapuram Temple, Kottyam.
