Shivappanayaka's palace is the great repository of valuable artefacts !

The 17th century king, Shivappa Nayaka of the Keladi Nayaka dynasty, is located in Shivamogga city (formerly known as Shimoga), the district headquarters of the Shivamogga district in the Karnataka state, India. The two storied building comprises a Durbar hall ("nobel court") with massive wooden pillars and lobed arched panels. The living chambers on the sides are at the upper level and have balconies and look down into the hall. Numerous antiquities collected from near by temples and archaeological sites, such as sculptures, inscriptions and hero stones from the Hoysala era and later periods are on display at the palace grounds. The building is a protected monument under the  The Government Museum (Shivappa Nayaka's Palace) is under the  Karnataka state Government and it is a division of the Archaeological Survey of India.
