    FAQ's of Munnar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Kathakali is an ancient and traditional dance form of Kerala, using elaborate make-ups, costumes, masks and set-ups. Kathakali originated in the 17th century and has its roots in Hindu mythology.

    The Punarjani cultural village in Munnar is the place to catch a Kathakali show. They perform daily from 5 to 6 PM. They also perform the traditional Kalarippayattu martial art show from 6 to 7 PM.

    Although its actual origin is unclear, however, this dance form emerged from coastal regions in South India during the 17th century. The popular belief is that Kathakali has emerged from "Krishananattam", a dance drama on the life and activities of Lord Krishna. It is a combination of dramatic make-up, facial expressions, mudras and soothing music.
