Nalknad Palace is located on the foot of Tadiyandamol Hills, which is the highest peak in Madikeri. Built by Dodda Virarajendra in 1792, this palace originally was property of Hindu King Langaraja. This double storied building served as a hunting lodge for the Kodava kings.
With intricate wood carvings, low slung conical roof, crested dome and pillared facade, the palace is an architectural wonder. The courtyard of the palace is decorated with statues of four bulls. The entire palace is decorated with ancient paintings attracting tourists.
Located in Kakkabe, this palace can be accessed by buses, jeeps and cabs from Madikeri and Virajpet, in Coorg.
