  • Amazing place to watch kathakali. Total duration of the show is 2:30 hrs. Before entering the premise a print out of the story is given. Then first one hr, artists do make up, which is an essence of Kathakali. It's an eye treat. Ambience is amazing. Followed by brief explanation of what Kathakali is ... 1:30 hrs of performance as per the print out given. Worth a watch for 350 per person. Don't miss it if you want to watch Kathakali.

  • The makeup application was interesting but could have skipped it but the introduction and demonstration of the various eye positions, facial expressions, hand gestures and all the meanings such subtle movements capture was simply fantastic. The musicians performing live with the dance were a joy to watch and listen to as well. What a pleasant way to spend an evening!

  • We watched Kathakali and Kalaripayattu performances and had a great time. We loved the smaller setting and the non-commercial way the performances were done. Highly recommend both shows. I recommend seeing both shows the same day (Kalaripayattu 4 - 5pm and Kathakali 5 - 7:30 but 5-6pm is just to watch them put on their make ups and skip it if you like).

  • Really nice presentation. The fact that you can go early to see the makeup being applied and are given an explanation of the particular movements and their means helped make this a fantastic experience

  • It was a great experience to watch Kathakali in Fort Kochin. Place located in the centre of the fort Kochi and easy to reach. Along with Kathakali here we can even enjoy the classical music, which we missed. Overall it was a great experience here.
