Padmanabhapuram Fort and Palace
Padmanabhapuram Fort and Palace Review
Believed to be the largest wooden palace in Asia, this magnificiant, 18th-century, carved-teak palace is actually across the border in neighboring Tamil Nadu, about a 1½-hour (63 km [39 miles]) drive south of Kovalam on National Highway 47. Once the home of the Travancore rajas (Travancore was the southernmost state, which was combined with Cochin and Malabar to form Kerala), it's one of the best-preserved examples of old wooden architecture in India.
