Kanakakunnu Palace

The Kanakakkunnu Palace, situated near the Napier Museum in Thiruvananthapuram, is one of the last vestiges of the colonial era. Kanakakkunnu palace is a testimony to grand times and the resort of kings.

 


Kanakakkunnu palace was constructed during the reign of His Highness Sree Moolam Tirunal. Swati Tirunal one of the most popular rulers, of the erstwhile princely state of Travancore , modified the palace and constructed tennis courts in the palace premises.

The interiors are decorated with large crystal chandeliers and exquisite pieces of royal furniture . Now the palace belongs to the Government. Today the palace and its sprawling grounds are the venue for many cultural meets and programmes.

An all India Dance Festival (October to March) is organised by the Department of Tourism every year in the Nisagandhi open-air auditorium, within the Kanakakunnu Palace compound. During this period the classical Indian Dance Performances are conducted every day.

The Sooryakanthi auditorium is a popular venue for staging exhibitions, trade fairs and cultural programmes. Apart from this a week long international food festival is also held at the Kanakakunnu Palace grounds in which renowned hotels from across Kerala take part

 

N.B
The use of plastic has been prohibited in the museum premises.
