There are some locations that still exude an old-world charm, making people yearn to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. One such location that astounds visitors with its opulent ambience is Krishnapuram Palace. One of the most noteworthy examples of traditional Kerala architecture appears to be the old Krishnapuram Palace in Kayamkulam. Anizham Thirunal Marthanda Varma, the monarch of the Kingdom of Travancore at the time, constructed it in the 18th century.

The palace has a museum where old sculptures, paintings, bronzes, and other antiquities are on show. The Gajendra Moksha, a sizeable mural of the elephant-headed god Lord Ganesha that is regarded as one of the largest in Kerala, is the museum's most well-known feature. There is also a display of antique bronze and stone sculptures, some of which feature Hindu gods and goddesses.

The palace is distinguished by its gabled roofs, narrow corridors and dormer windows. The craftsmanship and originality of the local carpenters are evident in the beautiful wooden carvings. The building is additionally embellished with traditional architectural elements like lotus petals, mythical creatures and Hindu deities. A historic landmark, Krishnapuram Palace offers a peek into the rich cultural and aesthetic legacy of Kerala and India.
