About Pazhassi Raja Archaeological Museum

Pazhassi Raja Museum, Calicut has been a popular destination for historians and fanatics of art and literature for many years. The museum has a rich and antique collection of mural paintings, ancient coins, and bronzes, models of temples, umbrella stones, and megalithic monuments such as the dolmenoid cysts. The museum also houses a number of paintings made by Kerala's most notable artists Raja Ravi Varma and Raja Raja Varma. They were aficionados of painting and other performing arts. Pazhassi Raja has a deep association with the history of Kerala too. The museum was named after the great Pazhassiraja Kerala Varma of the Kottayam royal family. Pazhassiraja led the famous ‘Pazhassi Revolt’ fought against the British East India Company during the second half of the 1700s. Nicknamed the ‘Lion of Kerala,' the ruler also introduced guerrilla warfare in the hills of Wayanad to combat the increasingly intolerable British colonialism. It is a must-see spot for the lover of art and archaeology.
