Watching Kathakali Live!

Between January and May, you can witness temple festivals galore in the state of Kerala. In the first week of May, we got to see the week-long festivities of the Nambikkal SreeKrishna Swamy temple in Cheruvukkal, North West Trivandrum, the capital city. Here are glimpses from the last day's cultural show of Kathakali one of the richest forms of traditional dances of India. Look up the entire Kathakali repertoire.

See how the make-up man carries out his task - one could watch for hours!

Look up different worlds here.
