About Cheruthuruthy:

Tour to Cheruthuruthy
Cheruthuruthy, a small serene village situated at a distance of about 32 km from Trichur is gradually making a prominent place for itself in the Kerala tourism map. It is visited by a large number of tourists not only because of its picturesque landscape but also because of the Kerala Kalamandalam. Most of them are interested in witnessing the place which has preserved and nurtured the Kathakali dance form. The Kerala Kalamandalam is located here on the banks of the Bharatpuzha River. Surely there could not be a better place to set up this prestigious institution. The gently rolling lands covered with lush green carpets and the tranquil flow of the river combine to create this strikingly expressive village. The ambience is indeed simple, pure and yet ethereal.

Tourist Attractions in Tour to Cheruthuruthy

Kerala, God's own country has a rich cultural heritage. Unfortunately towards the end of the nineteenth century the traditional art forms received a severe set back. Vallathol Narayana Menon then took upon himself the responsibility of reviving these various art forms, particularly Kathakali. He then set up Kerala Kalamandalam in this small sleepy village of Cheruthuruthy. For 78 years the school has imparted training to several artistes who have received national and international recognition.

Koothambalam, the only traditional dance theatre to be built outside a temple complex is there in Kalamandalam.
