In the vicinity of the magnificent Padmanabhaswamy Temple, stands the pristine two-storeyed Kuthiramalika Palace Museum. In the year 1840, Maharaja Swathi Thirunal Balarama Varma built this Museum to promote the traditional art forms of India. The exterior walls of the Palace are adorned with the carvings of 122 horses which gave its name Kuthiramalika, meaning Horse Bungalow. The Palace architecture is so unique that it is built in typical Travancore style with wooden carvings of teakwood and rosewood. Marble and granite were also used in its construction. The assets owned by the Travancore Royal Family along with royal portraits and paintings, royal armory, royal jewellery, and wooden sculptures are on the display at this Museum.
