Disclaimer: It's the only kathakali performance I have seen, hence can't comment on it versus others one might see in Kochi or in other places in Kerala. It's an hours performance. Starts with an explanation of navarasa, then some audience engagement and then the performance. On the day we went, they performed the "panchali sabadham". We enjoyed it, the three... More

A great exhibition of traditional martial arts and Kathakali that will keep you spellbound. Very fast paced, hence not a single moment of boredom. Very well organized with very little resources. Must see on your visit to Munnar.

We watched both Kathakali and Kalari show. If you go around 4:30 PM, you can also watch the artistes doing their makeup. Both the shows are enjoyable and they also offer time to take photos with them. Kids enjoyed the kalari show.
