Best place to see kathakali dance. It’s a training Center also for the same. You must not be avoiding this place more »
A surreal experience by professional performers! A must visit for tourists wanting to explore, understand and experience one of the most authentic theatre performance's of Kerala. It is advisable to book tickets in advance if you're visiting on weekends to get a better choice of seating as it gets crowded. The place has air conditioning and has seating on 2 levels. They have performances 365 days a year which is an added bonus.
Highly recommended! Brought my friends from London for the make-up and kathakali show. Gives a very nice introduction to the traditional art form and you come out truly appreciating the talent of the performers. The theater is air-conditioned and so is very comfortable. Customer service at the front desk also commendable. Keep up the good work!
