"Perfect Evening in Munnar"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 15, 2017
It is a nice place offering a lot of cultural activities like Kathakali and Kalaripayattu.
We decided to go for the Kalaripayattu which is the ancient form of martial art. It was an hour of excitement and thrill.
You can feel it by the pics I attached.
Fee: 200 per person

"Relaxation at its best"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Dec 31, 2016
During our trip to Munnar, we wanted to experience the rich & assorted traditions of Kerala and luckily we found Punarjani Village. Firstly, we had massage named "Sirodhara" that is head & shoulder massage. We loved it. It removed all our tiredness we gained during our trip. You can opt some other types of massage also like Kalari, Nasyam and steam Bath. Punarjani also offered us the traditional classical "Kathkali" dance and invigorating show of traditional martial art named "Kalarippayattu". It was a breathtaking show of courageous fight and mesmerizing body fitness & control. In all, Punarjani Traditional Village is a must visit place if you are in Munnar.

"Awesome performance however infrastructure requires improvement"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 29, 2016
At Punarjani Munnar (pallivasal) one can enjoy both Kathakali (At 5 PM Daily) and Kalari ( Martial Art by professionals at 6 PM Daily).

Kathakali starts with Showing Human Emotions which is the best part of this Show. Though they don't have very good sound system so you can really understand what Emcee is saying but still performers do their job very diligently.

Kalari (Martial arts) is another show at Punarjani, that is also very good and shows sheer practice of performers.

Cons: Seating is not up to mark however once performance starts it will bind you till end.

Overall a must to go and enjoy things.
