about napier museum

Napier Museum, located in the north of the city, is named after Lord Charles Napier, the governor of Madras (1866- 1872), who famously said about Sati, “When men burn women alive, we hang them.” The museum was started in the 19th century and houses a good collection of 11th-18th-century bronze and stone sculptures. Some visitors may find the exteriors of the museum more interesting, with its multi-coloured bricks. The zoological garden in the complex represents the diverse floral wealth of South India.

The main architecture of the building is a fascinating mix of Kerala, Mughal, Chinese and traditional Indian architectural styles. The museum contains Sri Chitra Art Gallery,which displays works by Nicholas Roerich and Raja Ravi Verma. It also has rare bronze idols, temple chariots, ancient ornaments and ivory carvings on display. Come here to get a glimpse of the amazing cultural heritage of Kerala.
