On 7th December 2019, we, a few students from fourth and sixth semester BA English and History accompanied by our teachers (Antique club),Ms.Dalia Vargheese and Ms, Blessy Paul C visited the famous Sakthan Thampuran Palace Museum situated at Vadakkechira, Thrissur. We all got together at 9.45 am in front of the gate and entered the museum together. The palace was indeed a place to behold. To keep the articles intact and secured, photography was not allowed inside. Entering the museum, we saw the things used by the royalty – the King’s chariot, the utensils used, the statues of deities etc. We were also lucky enough to see the palace architecture. The living room and the King’s bedroom were quite breath-taking. The paintings of the king were also shown.
After viewing the things used then, we saw different scripts used at that time. Monolithic statues of various deities were also impressive. Inside the courtyard, we also sighted various burial methods. The land area is also massive, and it was clear that the king took serious care of the palace’s protection. The visit was truly wonderful. Everything we saw and understood made us feel proud of our heritage. How history teaches about the old culture was well highlighted in the museum. We had great fun while learning about the palace history. The day was truly spectacularar
