Nilambur Kovilakam


Located 30 km from Malappuram is the magnificent home of NIlambur royal family, the Nilambur Kovilakam. The delightful frescoes and beautiful wooden artwork tell the tale of a culturally extravagant empire. Lying on the banks of the Chali River, the local rulers were responsible for the overall administration of the place. Built according to traditional Kerala architecture, the craftsmanship on display still astounds archaeologists and historians to this day. Nilambur and its famous teak plantations have earned the area much renown around the world.
