  • Must see. It is a very small palace but krishnapuram palace is very unique in its architecture style. The massive buttresses that support the upper storey is very unusual in a typical Kerala structure. The composition is in perfect harmony and it definitely is a hidden gem.
  • The Krishnapuram Palace named after the Krishnaswamy Temple at Krishnapuram, a serene village, is situated about 2 kilometres south of Kayamkulam town. It's a calm and quite place..we got many historical ideas from here...many sculptures,mural paintings...etc
  • Beautiful palace museum..... Well maintained. "Gajendramoksham" painting is the main attraction
  • Calm and quiet place with a lot of interlinked history. A must visit place for people who like to know the life and history of keralam
