Time flies... I did not forget you... You are a monument... High up on the mountains you shine like the sun.... Through the clouds you scare the thunder.... The old corners of memories...the silent path to the wilderness... The tear of the stairs which kissed a lot of feet.. grass that let you know the stories of the past... In darkness you shine like the sun that lost its time... I will remember you and tell stories about you... Your glory and pride... Your love ...

#godsowncountry #kerala Words wouldn't be enough to describe the beauty of #kerala 🌴. From architecture to food, one gets completely lost into beauty #keralatourism offers. The wooden details at #padmanabhapurampalace left me #awestruck at first and #curious to understand #keralaarchitecture after that. We explored different cities from #kochi to #kanyakumari during our week long trip.

I love dilapidated buildings, I cannot lie! What joy it is to behold ancient architecture and travel to centuries ago, while living in the today. Swipe to see some of the amazing structures of our times. That wooden ceiling for instance doesn’t have a repeat design of the flower you see and the ceiling spreads across an acre of land easily! 😮 . . #throwbackthursday to this quick but action-packed family outing to #padmanabhapurampalace a beautiful #palace situated near #nagercoil ! It was a one day visit and we covered 3 beautiful locations all close by ❤️. There’s soooooo much beauty in #TamilNadu and I feel that we spend too little time exploring our land. The next time I go down down south, I’ve already made a mental plan to explore other small places and bask in this land’s glory! You’ll surely see more of this 😃 . . PS: there’s a lot of antique and thrift shops around the area and we absolute splurged and it didn’t hurt our wallet one bit 😍 . . Photo credit: @danielsamfdo who wouldn’t take one nice family portrait. Props to Zoe & Cross who wouldn’t co-operate either 😂. . . #nonicephotos #travel #travelwithkids #travelogue #tamilnadu #southindia #tamil #nagercoil #nanjilnadu #padmanabhapuram

This is the largest wooden palace in the world. Built by the Travancore Kingdom starting from 1550 to 1750 AD. One of the few Kingdom which lasted till Indian Independence from the British. This palace is a 30 minutes drive from my home. It is one of the #UNESCO pending sites as a world heritage monuments. The palace got some damage during Cyclone Ockhi. This is the picture after the cyclone. #padmanabhapuram #padmanabhapurampalace #hometown #palace #thuckalay #kanyakumari #wood #wooden #woodworks #woodenbuilding #tamilnadu #kerala #india #heritage #tamilheritage #malayalam #malayalaheritage #keralaheritage #ockhi #ockhicyclone #travancore #travancoreheritage #travancoredynasty
Ancient Tamil History is often seen through the eyes of dominant Kingdom like Chera, Chola, Pandiya and Pallava. This Tamil copper plate is from none of them. One of the oldest record of Tamil History, the Ashoka pillar writes the name of 4 ancient Tamil Kingdom not 3. Velir is the fourth. One group of Velir who claimed themselves as a part of Yadav clan is the Ay Dynasty. Antiran, Titiyan and Atigan are some famous Ay Kings who ruled during the Last Sangam Age (3rd century BC and 2nd century AD). Some Historians say they could have been more powerful than the Cheras during that time. This coper plate is one of the most precious objects in the archaeological museum in Padmanabhapuram palace. Perhaps one of the most ancient object you can find in my district of Kanyakumari. This copper plate is from 864 AD by the Ay dynasty King Karunandadakkan. His capital lied near the port of Vizhinjam, which around 20km south of present day Thiruvananthapuram. With elephant as their emblem, the Ay dynasty were among the most powerful Tamil Kings present day South Kerala and South-East Tamil Nadu. Kerala or Malayalam had not got established yet. 9th Century Kerala was also part of Tamil Nadu. The plate records the king commissioning the construction of a temple for Vishnu and naming the palace as Parthivasekarapuram and establishing a boarding school for 95 Vedic students in Kandalur called as Kandalur Salai. I am not sure where exactly is Parthivasekarapuram, but I presume it could possibly be Padmanabhaswamy Temple. Maybe I am wrong. By the end of the Tamil dark ages, they ruled numerous parts of present day Kanyakumari and Tirunelveli districts including Kottar, Nanjanad and Maruthur. Ay Dynasty was at the height of its glory during the reign of Karunandadakkan and his son Vikramaditya Varaguna. As this plate dictates, Karunandadakkan had interest in the promotion of education and learning. But this school didn’t last due to the rise of a new agent of destruction, the Cholas. Eventually they had to face the undefeatable Raja Raja Chola in the Battle of Kandalue Salai. #padmanabhapuram #Tamil #Kerala #Ay #Ays #Velir #Pandya #Chera #copperplate #tamilking
