Palaces of South India

Updated on July 16, 2007

South India

South India has a long history. Currently, South India is part of India includes four states namely, Andra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu and Kerala. In the past this region had been broken into many small kingdoms. The boundries of these kingdoms were changing all the time and some of them were powerful at times. In the early days, the buildings were constructed out of perishable materials. Later, the temples were built of stone. As the palaces for the kings were erected by using bricks and wood, and the early dynasties could not stay in power flong enough to keep the palaces in good maintanance to make them survive to this date. Few palaces which belong to later periods are still in good order and some others survived partly. One of the most notable palace in good maintanance is Mysoor Palace in Karnataka state. Another palace in Kerala state is still standing as a good example for the Keralite Architectural style. There is another palace in Tamilnadu state. This was built by Thirumalai Nayak, a king belongs to one of the last local dynasties. This palace survived only partly.
