We went to the Kalaripayattu show, the place is a shed with bad seating (wooden palnk) and it was cold and damp. I caught cold in the first few minutes. The place was filled with insects. Half the time I was watching an insect which was crawling infront of me which looked like half scorpion and half cockroach to escape... More

This place offers live Kathakali and Kalaripayattu performances and I was extremely happy with the quality of both performances. Kathakali hinges on the facial expressions of the performers and all the performers managed to capture the details perfectly and conveyed the story to a rapt and engaged audience very well. I was quite taken in by the Kalaripayattu performance as... More

I visited Punarjani traditional village in july 2014. It is excellent and very enlightening. One should see both kathakali and the martial art show. If affordable try to take the very first row seats. One must also see the make up session. Star attraction in Munnar........

the rates I felt were little high, but the experience of Kathakali dance was very good. They also give an opportunity for you to pose with the dancers post the session. Though be aware - the seating place is very small and you only get benches and plastic chairs. Nothing premium about it. If you are looking at 'folk dance'... More

Be sure to watch both Katakhali and Kalaripayatu shows - more than worth your time and you'll definitely be sorry to leave Kerala without seeing them. Traditional Keralan simplistic drama and an ancient martial art.

Nice and professional actor perform here. On the way to Munnar. You can spend your some time here to get a feel of Kerala culture. Do follow the show timing properly otherwise you could end up with missing the show and then wait for long 1 Hr.

The traditional village is quite special especially with the folks giving a live commentary of traditional dance (tread kathak Kali) in intervals and making the whole dance relevant to modern times. Not many places explain culture in such a way hence unique to Kerala, The Kalaripayyayattu was a good experience especially for first timers to Kerala and this form of... More

It was excellent show in Punarjani Traditional Village. It is about the Martial arts. The guys there are excellent and very much talented. They were very much serious in giving a good presentation and they succeeded in it. I will recommend everyone who visit Munnar, not to miss this one.
