A Trip To Revi Karunakaran Museum in Alappuzha Kerala

Kerala, the place where the Gods live, is one of the most amazing places on earth to visit.  There are not one, but many reasons that make Kerala a wondrous place for the natives and the tourists alike.  The tranquility in the atmosphere, the serenity of the beaches, the calm rivers and the stretch of greenery and the peacefully afloat boathouses are some of the attractions that have captivated the beholders for untold times.  But Kerala’s offerings are not just limited to the gifts of the nature.  There are other manmade establishments you will not want to miss.  The two such places are Revi Karunakaran Museum and Samskrithy Center.

This museum is located on the National Highway – 47 that passes through the city of Alappuzha.  It is located quite close to the powerhouse bridge.  This museum has been established by putting the items of antique and artistic values that were collected by Rev Karuna Karan during his lifetime. Karuna Karan was a renowned personality in the coir industry, but the collection of the antique and rare items was his passion.  

While strolling down the alleys of the museum, one wonders how difficult it is to take the gaze off the collector’s items of remarkable artistic value.  The range of rare crystal wares in the museum is unmatchable and the craft behind it is bound to elicit a sigh of awe from the onlookers.  The collection of ivory, which is a mark of royalty, also draws the same amount of respect, if not more.  The beauty of such value impresses on the memories that donot wither away in a lifetime.  The collection of the crystal and ivory items is virtually unparalleled not only in numbers but also in appeal.
