We decided to spend an hour each for Kathakali and the Martial Arts show which was one of the main highlights of our stay in Munnar. We did not know what to expect from the Kathakali show, but the way it was explained was just very easy to understand. Moreover, the martial arts show is treat to watch after the... More

A not to be missed place in Munnar. Punarjani is a traditional village themed place offering two shows 1) Kathakali 2) Kalarippayattu. Both the performances are spellbound and not be missed. After the shows do remember to click picture with the artists. And would suggest to take premium seats for better view.

This was my first time i witnessed kathakali so i do not have a benchmark. The Kathakali performers performed quite well and were engaging with the audience during the entire show. I felt the place had a smell of dampness but it did not bother us much. We also saw the martial arts performance which was very nice. A nice... More

We visited Punarjani Traditional Village on 30th Nov. There are 2 shows there. The first one is a Kathakali performance from 5 to 6 pm followed by Kalarippayattu from 6 to 7 pm. It's best to book your tickets in the morning as the front seats were taken by the time we went to book in the afternoon. Since we... More

This is a show of traditional Kerala Kalari and Kathakali. The ticket is very costly. May be affordable for Foreigners and wealthy people. Any way spending one time for the artist is fine for me. There are two shows every day. Take the front seat to get a good view of the show.

Explore and enjoy the traditional danceforms of kathakalli and martial art of kalaripayattu. Takes approximately 2 hours for both performances. Plan for tickets in advance though.

Loved the whole performance. There is one daily 5-6 show followed by martial art performances. There are 3 categories of seating. First 7 rows are for 300rs, then for 200rs and lastly the balcony seats for 250. The performance was amazing. Must not miss this amazing experience
