Its a must see show specially the Martial Art. Its awesome. The entire show divided into two section. First one is Kathakali where you can see how a performer dressed up. 2nd one is Martial Art. I recommend every one to see the Martial Art show.

The traditional kathakali dance show was very poor, the martial arts show was slightly better. Would not recommend. Better shows available in Kochi.

Performers seemed quite professional an the whole attraction... More
