This museum is located on East hill, at a distance of mere 5 Km from Kozhikode and has been a witness to a great history enriched with art and culture of the bygone era. The museum has been named after the famous Pazhassiraja Kerala Varma, belonging to the Padinjare Kovilakom of the Royal Family of Kottayam.
Pazhassiraja nicknamed as “Lion of Kerala” introduced guerilla warfare in Wayanad hills as a resistance towards the increasing colonialism by the British. The king was shot dead in an encounter dated 30th November 1805 AD.
The antique articles on display include some of the ancient murals, old bronzes and coins belonging to the megalithic age, such as diamond cysts, umbrella stones and temple miniatures.
An art gallery lies adjacent to this museum and exhibits a superb collection of paintings by the two renowned artists, named Raja Ravi Varma and Raja Raja Varma.
