This unique museum traces the history of Malayalam and Kerala's indigenous culture
 
 
 
THE Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit in Kalady recently became the site of a first-of-its-kind museum that documents the history and evolution of the Malayalam language, as well as that of indigenous cultures in the state.
 
The Kanakadhara Museum of Arts and Indigenous Culture was completed on August 26 and is currently open only to students and those connected to the university.
 
However, once the Covid-19 situation improves in the state, the museum will be open to the general public as well, with safety protocols in place. Twenty-eight-year-old Sathyajith Ibn is the chief architect behind this unique venture, which is the first designated university-run museum in the state.
