Napier Museum

Napier Museum - An architectural splendor combining Kerala Architecture with Chinese, Italian and Mughal styles

The 19th century English architect, Chisholm, designed the building, which houses a rare collection of archaeological and historical artifacts
The interiors of the Indo-Sarcenic structure are every bit as intriguing as the exterior with pink and blue stripes alternating with stripes of yellow and cherry red, scalloped arches of a banana yellow, interpreting elaborately carved balconies, the whole linked together with red and white lattice work and mock friezes.The building boasts of a natural air conditioning system.The whimsical building dating from 1880, displays an assortment of bronzes, historical and contemporary ornaments, temples carts, ivory carvings and life size figures of Kathakali dancers in full costumes.

Nearby, there is the Natural History Museum, first opened in 1857, that has a collection of ethnographic pieces, animal skeletons and stuffed animals and birds.

An exceptional piece of architecture, the Museum is named after the former Madras Governor General John Napier

Manuscripts library

Manuscripts library

Photo credits : Rajith

The Oriental Research Institute & Manuscripts Library under University of Kerala, is one of the leading centres of Indological Studies in India. In this world recognised institute, research in the fields connected with Manuscriptology is happening. The dept is microfilming the manuscripts of certain technical subjects. Researchers from India and Abroad are doing intensive work here.


The genesis of this library (ORI & MSS) is to be traced to the orders of Ayilyam Tirunal Maharaja (King) of Travancore to collect all manuscripts in the state so as to be kept in the safe custody of the Palace Library. Considering the overwhelming enthusiasm from the Orientalists all over the world, during early nineteen hundred Swathi Thirunal Maharaja (the then King of Travancore) published many of the manuscripts in the Palace Library and the manuscripts collection of ancient families.
