HISTORY OF MAHAL :

Ruled this former kingdom was The Nayaks of Madurai. Their period would be since 1545 - 1740 based on history about the kingdoms and The Thirumalai Nayak in 1623 - 1659. He was great over the bloodline of the Nayak kings. His period was the main evidence of many buildings and architectural works over the city. The palace we see now was the re-innovated one. The old palace suffered in the effect of wars in the times. In British (East India Company) ruling period this palace act as a garrison, as granaries, store-houses, powder magazines.

It is the Palace constructed in the 17th century of King Thirumalai Nayakar of Madurai Nayakar dynasty. The total architect of this Palace would be the fusion of Rajput and Dravidian culture with Muslim style. Demolished happened in this palace by Thirumalai Nayakar Grandson to built a new palace in Trichy, he craved most of the woodworks and jewels. From 1862 - 1872 the Lord Napier of Madras Government had partially restored the palace, this is the reason we able to see entrance gate, dance and the main hall of this palace.

ARCHITECTURAL FACTS!

The palace is most famous for giant pillars on the total place like audience chamber named Svarga Vilasam and Ranga Vilasam with royal residence, apartments, armory, pond, garden, etc. Like I said the palace was divided into two divisions, clearly named Svarga Vilasam and Ranga Vilasam. The Pillars Height must be 82 feet and width 19 feet. The Courtyard still in my mind remains all the circular pillars. The dome-shaped ceilings inside the walking area make me so proud feel about the Tamizhans.
