A regal splendour
The grand edifice of Kanakakkunnu Palace in Thiruvananthapuram, the capital city of Kerala, South India is a heritage from the Maharajas of Travancore, the former rulers of the place.
The palace that sports a unique architectural style was constructed first during the rule of the King Sree Moolam Thirunal and later modified during the reign of Sree Swati Thirunal.
Originally used by the royal family to entertain guests, it has now been renovated by the government into a venue for conducting seminars, fairs, exhibitions, etc.
Kanakakkunnu in Malayalam means hill of gold.
