‘Pazhassi Kovilakam’ to be protected monument

The century-old ‘Pazhassi Kovilakam’ in Kannur district, the heritage mansion where the descendants of legendary king Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja lived, will be taken over by the state government soon.

Pazhassi Raja was an erstwhile ruler who fought against the British in Malabar region during the 18th century.

A meeting, chaired by chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, decided in principle to take over the ancestral home and adjacent properties as the protected monument of the state archaeology department.

Vijayan directed officials concerned to go ahead with necessary proceedings in this regard, an official release said.

The decision was taken based on the recommendations of civic authorities at Mattannur in Kannur, where the building is located.
