Enjoyed Kathakali. Especially the Kathakali Mundra demonstration by Kalamandalam Prakasan. Enjoyed Narakasuravadham play there after. This was one hour duration.Next one hour we were thrilled by the adventurous art Kalaripayatt by Lulu and group. It was a great experience for us.

Good place for visit . Price is Rs 400 for 2 hour show . First one hour for dance and another for marshal art. Good for time pass . Marshal art was more attractive.
