Punarjani traditional village offers a memorable one-time experience for tourists. At the end of the show, you would want to take snapshots with the performing artists. The performances are quite beautiful.


  • Kathakali performances are a visual delight.
  • Breathtaking Kalarippayattu performances.
  • Genuine traditional performances.


  • Its being done in the traditional way, so there's not much in the form of infrastructure.
  • Its a bit hot inside the theatre, especially during summer.
