Koyikkal Palace

The Koyikkal Palace, situated far of away from the city, was actually built for Umayamma Rani of the Venad Royal Family who ruled the land between 1677 and 1684. The palace is a double stroreyed traditional nalukettu with slanting gabled roofs and an inner courtyard.

There are some experiences related to the past in which we completely forget our associations with the present times. When we enter the Folklore and Numismatics museum at Koyikkal Palace, Nedumangad, such an experience awaits us. It is a real treasure house of quaint musical instruments, occupational implements, household utensils, models of folk arts etc. This museum was set up in 1992 and the exhibits here draw attention to the rich cultural background of the state. Many rare articles like Chandravalayam, Nanduni (musical instruments), Kettuvilakku (a ceremonial lamp) and many gold as well as the silver coins of the yesteryears, can be seen here.

Located in a lush green area, the palace is sure to enthrall you if you have a love for the past. So, do not miss it if you are in the capital city, Thiruvananthapuram.
