Castle Architectural Building
A majestic 17th-century palace, Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal represents one of India's architectural wonders, built as a royal residence. Although much of the palace was destroyed by various armed conflicts in the area and only about a quarter of the original structure remains, you can still admire the enclosed court with its monumental pillars--a classic blend of Rajput and Dravidian building styles. Our Madurai vacation generator makes visiting Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal and other Madurai attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Historic place.. one of the most attractive place in Madurai... One should not miss this as well... But it's not maintained well... Any one can touch the statues and sculptures that's the prob which may get damaged... One hour time can be spent...
  • Aiswarya and abhishek bachans famous tera bina song shot here. It is completely opposite from what you see in the song. A grand palace with very poor maintenance
  • The place shows simply an historical court(during King's time)
  • The Architecture of the place is good. The place is not maintained and protected good enough to preserve it's architectural beauty.
  • A very popular attraction, but not maintained well. The huge pillars look well, worth going once.
