A palace museum maintained by the Archaeological Department of Kerala is located in Kayamkulam near Alappuzha. Palace was built in the 18th century near the Krishnaswamy Temple at Krishnapuram by Anizham Thirunal Marthanda Varma, a king of Travancore Kingdom.
The Kerala architectural style of the palace with gabled roof, narrow corridor, dormer windows, large pond and the secretive tunnel attracts the tourists. Palace holds exhibits that belonged to Krishnapuram Palace and its former occupant, the Travancore Maharaja Marthanda Varma.
