Nice picture. Here is some additional info for those who may be interested:
The Kanakakunnu Palace was constructed in the reign of the Travancore King, His Highness Sree Moolam Tirunal (1885-1924). The Palace was the main venue for Royal banquets. Later Hiss Highness Sree Chithira Tirunal modified the Palace and constructed tennis courts in the palace premises.This stunning piece of architectural excellence was used by the Travancore royal family to entertain their guests in the earlier days. The interiors are decorated with large crystal chandeliers and exquisite pieces of royal furniture.
