 Title: "Rajah's house in Chiracal."
Creator: Richter, Christian Georg (Mr)
Date: 05.07.1855-31.05.1860
PLACE :PRESENT KANNUR CHIRAKKAL?



Having said this, I visited the place at Chirakkal, Kannur for clarification,but i couldn't find a similar structure there. Chirakkal Chira is so big and the presence oft he tree is  and the location of roads are confusing. I surfed and find a probability of another palace in north Malabar, that is Nileswaram Thekke  Kovilakam.  the structure resembles somewhat, and the locations and symmetries are connecting.  please check the images.
 
Check the position of steps to the   Chira,( small Lake) and relative position of surroundings. Chirakkal chira is almost same, but little more big.

The place marked is Nilambur Thekke Kovilakam. The green round corresponds a relative position of the tree in old photo( now  ma be non exist) and X mark may be  the probable location of the photographer.
 
 
The place marked is Chrakkal Kovilakam . The green  round corresponds a relative position of the tree in old photo( now  ma be non exist) and X mark may be  the probable location of the photographer.
 
 
MY assumptions can be 100% wrong. !
 
and it seems I was wrong. the most  probable locality of the palace is near the tree which still exists at noth side of chira, The place marked in red  is Chrakkal Kovilakam which was  demolished  a few decdes ago. . The green  round corresponds a relative position of the tree in old photo and red rectangle is an empty area probably the site of old palace ( now  may be non exist) and X mark may be  the probable location of the photographer.
