Shivappanayaka Palace

Took some time out to visit the Shivappanayaka Palace here in Shimoga.
Shivappa Nayaka (reigned 1645 - 1660), also known as Keladi Shivappa Nayaka, was a notable ruler of the Keladi Nayaka Kingdom.

The Shivappa Nayaka Palace is located amidst the busy streets of Shimoga. The liberal use of wood for the construction of the palace renders a rustic look to it.

The open courtyard has octagonal wooden pillars and two flights of stairs. It is flanked by rooms on either side. The upper storey has two rooms and sixteen wooden pillars. It is said that the balcony of the palace was used to conduct durbars (court of a native ruler) when the king paid a visit to the town. Rajaram, the son of Maratha king Shivaji, is said to have taken refuge in this palace when he was attacked by Aurangzeb.
