Photographer's Note

The Palace is a series of large and rambling buildings of fine masonry, built partly by the Nayaks around 1550 AD, and partly by the Marathas.

This is the inside view of the Madamaligai, a tower with six floors. It is believed that this was built by Nayak ruler to enable him worship Sri Ranganatha of Srirangam every mid-day. This many-tiered tower was destroyed by lightning and was subsequently repaired and preserved.
