about kuthiramalika palace museum

Just outside the Padmanabhaswamy Temple, this is a complex of several palaces and buildings. As you approach the entrance to the inner palace, the slanting wooden beams in the upper galleries, carved in the form of grinning kuthiras (horses), immediately catch your attention. The Kuthiramalika Palace was built in the 19th century by Swathi Thirunal, the composer king who, along with Thyagaraja and Muthuswamy Dikshitar, is a giant of Carnatic music. The palace displays the king’s collection of musical instruments as well as a variety of arms, their beauty and artistry symbolising the Travancore kings’ preference for settling disputes by treaty.
