Enjoy the colour and drama of India’s festive pageantry
Kerala Village Fair, Kovalam, Kerala
Mid January is the time for cultural events in the lush villages around Kovalam every year. Traditional thatched houses are decorated during this 10-day festival and are the venue for folk dances, music and festivities. A typical Kerala village -'gramam'-- is recreated replete with the traditional Nalukettu houses, local teashops, etc. In the evenings, almost every dance, art and martial art form of Kerala is performed in the open-air auditorium of the gramam.
