About Nalknad Palace

Amidst dense forest stands the Nalknad Palace, a retreat or a getaway of sorts for the Kings of Coorg. It was built to mark the victory of Dodda Veerarajendra over Tipu Sultan. It is a two-story structure built by the king himself in architecture typical of the region. The palace was last occupied by Chikka Veerarajendra before he surrendered it to the British in 1834. It is located at the foot of Thadiandamol peak- the highest in Coorg. The first look at the building and you may not feel all that royal. But the real beauty lies beyond the obvious! As you enter the palace, you see some fine murals and structures on walls, which have been restored that narrate the story of the Royals. There is a king's room with different depictions on the walls and a queen's room sharing a different tale. Right outside the palace, you will find Pavilion, which is believed to have been constructed for the King's wedding. It is in ruins now, but whatever is left tell us it must have been a beautiful structure, once upon a time.
