  • A culture of kathkali is just amazing . quite a costly but please see once they are doing very hard . worth for money 
  • This is the most unusual traditional dance form I have ever seen. I guess the fascination is partly in watching the preparation which takes about an hour to do the make up and have the costume fitted....  more »
  • Nice you can attend the makeup and preparation. The show is a mixture of dance and MIME, easily understandable from reading the story represented. The actors are great. Shame not to have seen the second show, at approximately 18.00 we preferred a beautiful sunset at the nearby beach.
