The show timing is perfect 5 PM to 6 PM & 6 PM to 7 PM - when you are done with all other munnar activities. Perfect way to end up the day or start up the evening. The Katakali & Kalaripatu shows together may cost you Rs. 400 per person, but is worth the money and visit. The movements... More

We went for their evening back to back shows of Kathakali and Kalari. Very useful two hours. It showed their dedication and the commitment. Equal number of children and women taking part.

If you are ready to spend Rs.200 with out any reason you can do that here .My concern is that not they are not doing well but concept of this show is just for expressions not for dance .

I visited it in December '15 ! The show was awesome and engrossing! When we reached there the Kalaripattayu show had already started! We bought the tickets and rushed to our seats! From then it was 1 and half hour of non stop brilliance! There was hardly a second when our attention got diverted! At the end it will leave... More

It's my first visit to Munnar and i visited punarjani village and the kaliripayttu ( traditional martial arts) show was good. The performance of the artist was good and they have ayurvedic massage in the village which was good.. Overall i would recommend punarjani for first time visitors..

We were interested in Kathikali dance which the south India is famous for. While buying ticket we were talked in to buying Marshal Arts fight ticket which turn out to be totally bogus. We were also told that they are the best for massage but found that hotel does it cheaper. Beware of this place. It seems like they have... More

Enjoyable (both), light-hearted (Kathakali) and exhilarating (Kalaripayattu) shows in a rather basic theater. Worth an evening visit.

The traditional kuchipudi dance was worth watching. They have two shows, 5-6 pm and 6-7 pm. In 5-6 pm slot they show kuchipudi dance and in 6-7 pm slot it's traditional Marshal arts. The price to watch the show is Rs. 200 per person. We really enjoyed their performance. Their facial expressions especially eyes n cheeks is really commendable. They... More
