Government Museum

Government Museum, Government Museum historical, Government Museum travel, Government Museum tourism, Government MuseumFounded in 1857 the museum is located within a spacious park and zoological garden. The art set covers aspects of Kerala's rich legacy, especially stone, wood and bronze sculpture. Over the centuries Kerala developed a unique style of craftsmanship in the visual and performing arts.

The Bronze Gallery displays the particular characteristics of bronzes from Kerala which were distinct from the ones from Tamil Nadu. Though the bronzes may date to the same period, they are shorter and stockier, with squarish jaws, sharp eyes and nose. The images also tend to be more ornate with elaborate jewellery and clothing.

The 9th century Vishnu Srinivasa is one of the oldest pieces. However, the later figures of the Notoraja, many devis and other deities follow similar patterns of ornamentation. Temples in Kerala are traditionally overstated with wooden sculpture. The displayed wooden beams, pillars, brackets are some of the most fascinating features of temple architecture. The museum also displays richly carved wooden chariots which were used for temple processions to carry the deity. Government Museum Thiruvananthapuram
