Revisiting Eraniel Palace - Foreword

Often, we come across

'........... lakhs /crores allocated' or

' ........... lakhs/crores to be allocated once the project report is submitted'

in the news. Knowingly or Unknowingly, we pay little attention.But when someone follows such news, the outcome may not be a desired one.

When the issue relates to Archaeology / Conservation,
the allocation exists in the papers and ruins just like
the heritage monuments.

Eraniel Palace in Kanyakumari district is an idealistic example for this continuing tradition.

Here follows the Web Chronology of (available) events related
to the issues and developmental (?) works of Eraniel Palace.
