A run down palace. Nothing grand nor any thing special. May have some heritage value and one just goes because the guide takes you there .

We reached at 7pm and stumbled upon a son et lumiere at the palace. It was about Thirumala Nayak ‘s reign and Madurai itself. We enjoyed it very much.

What a shame the original was destroyed but the rebuild is still interesting. The museum artifacts add to the experience. It would be good if they could keep the pigeons out - watch where you stand!

Sadly the pigeons need to be cleared this may help to clean the palace up but you are correct money needs to be diverted to clean the site up.
