Thirumalai Nayak Mahal


Close to the Meenakshi Amman Temple is the Thirumalai Nayak Mahal, a 17th century palace built by Thirumalai Nayak in the Indo Sarcenian style of architecture. In its heyday the palace was an elaborate affair with royal mansions, shrines and armory vaults. Thirumalai Nayak was famous for the many dance and music presentations that he patronized at his palace. Little of the original splendor remains, except a large courtyard and several ornate buildings, but a nightly sound and light show provides a fascinating insight into the city’s ancient history. The palace’s imposing edifice is famous for the stuccowork on its domes and impressive arches. The Celestial Pavilion is constructed entirely of brick and mortar without the support of a single rafter or girder. Among the other striking features of the palace are the massive white pillars, several of which line the corridor that runs along the courtyard. Elsewhere, there are polished black stone pillars of varying heights.
