Situated in the center of Trivandrum city and about 800 meters from Napier Museum, Kanakakunnu Palace is one brilliant showcase of British architecture in India. Built on the Kanakakunnu hill, which literally means, ‘the golden hill’, the palace served as the designated place for the princely feasts and leisure for appreciating country art under the reign of king Moolam Thirunal. Later tennis courts and other major enticing areas were added to its premises by another ruler from the lineage, king Swathi Thirunal.

Embellished with huge chandeliers, rich furniture and perfect lighting, the palace gives the real essence of being in a place that has held great importance in the past. With its proximity to the royal residential palace, only about two kilometers, nothing has much been altered since Democracy took over in both the palaces which add to the beauty of both of them.

As we climb up the hill, the greenery on the hill that welcomes us serves as a small trailer to grab the whole of our attention. The trees and the natural look give us a clean, calm and beautiful escape from the world. The lawn to the front of palace adds to the royalty and exuberance to our destination.

Thiruvananthapuram is a magnificent place that is full of natural beauty and exuberant monuments. It’s a must-visit for all its reasons and Trivandrum’s royal beauty adds to it.
