There are two shows one for Kathakali and the other for Martial Arts. We went for kathakali and it was a nice experience watching artist performing some great stuff. Its an hour show which may cost you Rs 300 for front row seats (Premium). Please have your tickets as soon as you arrive Munnar. It's actually on the way to... More

This is probably the second best attraction in Munnar after the KDHP tea factory visit. We saw the Kathakali show only which lasted for about an hour. We booked the tickets in the morning and chose the premium option. The seating arrangements could have been better. Choose the premium tickets (Rs. 300 per head) if you want to get the... More

The shows was really great we saw both the Kathakali and the Kalarippayattu show. The first one is theater done purely by acting and exaggerating facial expressions punctuated a few times by a English speaking story teller, the show is depicting a story from the Hindu religion. During the show they are engaging the crowd, inviting spectators to join the... More

The massage place is full with tourist and hope for a good traditional massage. But it turns up worst, the masseur is not experienced and still on training. I personally feels that I waste my time and money.

Watched the marshal arts show with family. Agreed that its a local art show, with good individual talent. However, the concerns are: 1. Very loud irritating music 2. Pronunciation of the conductor is awful (I am an Indian). Self-boastful, loud and hard to comprehend 3. Lack of interaction of the individual performer with the audience - except for few minutes....

They have two shows : Kathakali and Martial Arts. Worst Part: Kathakali show - It is of 60 mins but actual dance is performed only for 5 mins in the last, rest all the time they keep on showing crappy cheap acts which is very boring and all it contained was movement of eyes, hands and face expressions. I suggest... More

There are 2 performances that happen daily: Kathakali and Kalaripayattu. We opted for the second one. And I loved the show. The performance was amazing. The energy, the movement, and the involvement of the audience. Here's a photograph that I took: https://www.facebook.com/AmitRanjanSahuPhotography/photos/a.622651591184489.1073741827.622427657873549/741786925937621/?type=1&theater The only issue was: It's in a lower auditorium and is accessible by stairs.

Just awesome. Loved it. Punarjani Traditional Village has two shows - Kathakali and Traditional Martial Arts. We went for only the Kathakali, and it was awesome. Next time, Martial Arts too :)
