Kanakakkunnu Palace


Kanakakunnu%20Palace_keralatourismmaps

          The Kanakakunnu Palace was constructed during the time of the Travancore King, His Highness Sree Moolam Tirunal (1885-19240). .It has been later used by the travancore royal family to entertain its guests and serve non vegetarian food as the royal family was vegetarian. Located about 800 meters north east of the Napier Museum in the heart of Trivandrum city, Kanakakunnu Palace is one of the last architectural vestiges of the colonial era. Built during the reign of Travancore king Sree Moolam Thirunal (1885-1924), the palace served as the main venue for royal banquets. Later Swathi Thirunal, one of Travancore’s popular rulers, refurbished the palace and constructed tennis courts in the premises.




          He also did use it for a few years as a summer retreat. Boasting a quaint Kerala-style façade, the Travancore royal family used the house to entertain guests.


          Inside you will see massive crystal chandeliers and an array of exquisite pieces of royal furniture - a testimony to the lavish lifestyle of the Thirunal kings who had a penchant for music and art. Add to it a picturesque setting on the crest of a small hill lush with meadows, grooves and flowering shrubs
