Durbar Hall, Kochi

Dubar Hall ground at Kochi

Durbar Hall ground
Durbar Hall. I liked its architecture. It's not in ethnic Kerala style. It may be a fusion different styles. Anyway its a cool building. You can see the expanded view by clicking the picture.
'Durbar Hall is a place where Indian Kings had their formal and informal meetings.'wiki
Its a green place to have a walk in the midst of the city. The Royal look of Durbar Hall increase the charm of Durbar Hall ground. We can see Ramavarma Club from the ground. Everything have the royal touch here. We can see the famous Ernakulam Shiva Temple from here.
It was the durabar hall of the Cochin Royal family. Now it turned into an Art gallery. This ground had witnessed some important historical moments. Now its a busy hangout place in Ernakulam with pay and park and recreation facilities.
There is an open air stage at one end of the ground and one ancient building known as 'Kulapuramalika' is in the other corner. Jos junction is at walkable distance from here.
Pareekshith Thamburan Museum is also in this building. It has a wide collection of 19th centuary monuments, paintings and coins. Its must visit place in Ernakulam.
