To know a destination inside out, you need to walk back in time. You need to know about its history; the bygone eras that led to the creation of its modern-day body and soul. A destination affluent in history, Kerala’s past across the centuries has been well documented. Keralam – Museum of History and Heritage is one place you should visit to know all about that. Located in the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram, this is a joint venture of the Kerala Tourism Department and the Department of Archaeology in Kerala.
There are 8 galleries inside the museum. Each deals with separate periods in the history of the region including the pre-historic age, iron age, early and medieval history, stone sculptures, wooden sculptures, bronze sculptures, Art and Architecture, Traditional Art Forms, Musical Instruments, Mural Paintings and Heritage of Kerala. Documentaries on Kerala’s cultural history are available here.
Besides these, archaeological evidence of the Neolithic age, burial accompaniments belonging to the Iron Age, sculptures of Gods and Goddesses in bronze, wood and stone, coins, murals and many more are on display in this centre. Some of the other attractions include a 14th-century Brahma sculpture, 16th Century Nataraja Sculpture and 17th Century murals.
