A majestic 17th-century palace, Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal represents one of India's architectural wonders, built as a royal residence. Although much of the palace was destroyed by various armed conflicts in the area and only about a quarter of the original structure remains, you can still admire the enclosed court with its monumental pillars--a classic blend of Rajput and Dravidian building styles.
