Originally constructed in the 18th century, this building is a fine example of the southern vernacular, a jigsaw of wooden parts influenced by the house building traditions of Kerala. Drawn from the forests of the Western Ghats, it is a construction of many thousands of interlocking beams, panels and screens, sheltered by a roof canopy that appears to float above, making light of a structural complexity that reflects a forgotten refinement. Rajakkad's Pallam Palace began life in a very different environment. It settles now with quiet authority upon its hill, having found its way here. Twice dismantled, twice transported, twice re-assembled, a living testimony to its wondrous construction. Rajakkad estate is approached along an avenue of royal palms. Red-flowered Flamboyants line the drive to Pallam Palace, at the top of the hill. The building is set around a pattern of courtyards and pools. A series of covered walkways link the 8 bedrooms to the library, the dining room and the sitting rooms. The water from the pools cools the atmosphere. White plaster walls seem to reflect the calm and instil a sense of retreat from the outside world. A repetition of louvered screens and doorways direct a flow of gentle breezes through the house and offer a multiple of framed views of the outside world.
