Nileshwaram Palace

The architecture of the building follows the traditional Kerala nalukettu style with an open courtyard in the middle of the palace.

Nileshwaram is the cultural capital of Kasaragod. With its forest lands and sacred shrines, the Nileshwaram palace is situated 2 kilometres from the Nileshwaram railway station. The palace is comparatively small as the region was only a small province of the ruling king. The architecture of the building follows the traditional Kerala ‘nalukettu’ style with an open courtyard in the middle of the palace. 

The entire building is made of wood and laterite stones. Beautiful engravings are done in wood. The second storey of the building has a seated balcony projecting towards the front of the palace. The lion statue placed on the balcony is said to be the official symbol of the royal palace. The palace is still owned by the descendants of the royal family and special permission is to be taken in order to visit this heritage building.
