Conceptualized in the 17th century to be one of the grandest buildings in South India, the Thirumalai Nayakkar Mahal today is a fraction of the original structure. Constructed in 1636, the palace is a fusion between the Dravidian and Islamic architecture and was executed by an Italian architect. The building is famous for its giant pillars measuring up to 82 feet in height. There is an attractive ‘light and sound’ show every evening lasting 50 minutes. The English show begins at 18:45 Hrs while the Tamil show begins at 20:00 Hrs.
