Looking back into history is a good way to understand how far we have travelled and how the journey was. While we cannot travel back in time, we can definitely be enthralled by living structures that reflect history richly. The Koyikkal Palace is one such place that will fascinate you with its history and tell many stories of the bygone times. Situated in the suburban town of Nedumangad in the Thiruvananthapuram district, the Koyikkal Palace was built in the 17th century and was the residence of Umayamma Rani, the regent of Venad kingdom.

The palace is currently a folklore and numismatics museum. The highly valuable antique collection in the palace throws light on the past of Kerala and the life of royalty. One of the unique features of the palace is its double-storied structure with distinctive gabled roofs. There are various utensils, folk art models and musical instruments stored in the palace. Chandravalayam, a small and rare percussion instrument can only be seen in Koyikkal Palace. Also on display are several manuscripts, ornaments and decor that were the possessions of the royal family.

The numismatics museum has in store many rare and olden coins from different parts of the world, a factor that throws light into Kerala’s old trade relations with different parts of the world.
