Major-General Sri Chithira Tirunal H.H. Maharaja Bala Rama Varma of Travancore,GCSI, GCIE was the Col-in-Chief of Travancore State forces from 1924-1949 and of the Travancore-Cochin State Forces for the period 1949-1954.

Really amazing pictures of the royal city. Just makes one realise how trivandrum was before independence.

If the captions are there we can relate it to something existing or otherwise.
These pictures are worthseeing but do not remain in our memory since we dont know what it represents.
Hope the poster will appreciate what I mean and do the needful.
Thanks in advance.
