Kerala Folklore Theatre and Museum

Advance into this three-storied building and go for a walk down history where each drift that you experience is scented with times passed by, its way of life and legacy. This is Kerala Folklore Theater and Museum at Thevara, Ernakulam - an extraordinary dare to protect the amazing old stories abundance of the State. Opened in the year 2009 as a non-benefit association, the exhibition hall is really a fortune trove that grandstands the rich legacy that Kerala radiates through its various workmanship and move frames. Curios that bear the fragrance of former period like covers, figures, in wood, stone and bronze, outfits of conventional and custom works of art, melodic instruments, customary adornments, compositions of uncommon restorative and celestial privileged insights, and Stone-Age utensils are altogether saved in this gallery with most extreme care.

The building itself is a bit of ponder with its three stories following the compositional styles of Malabar, Cochin and Travancore. The passageway to this glorious structure is developed from the remainders of a sixteenth century sanctuary in Tamil Nadu and wooden carvings gathered from crosswise over Kerala. The passage entryway is decked with an appealing manichitratazhu (a conventional resplendent entryway bolt of Kerala). Close to this passageway entryway are punctured wooden windows, reminiscent of the interesting Malabar style of engineering. The principal floor with the Cochin engineering style is brilliantly named as kalithattu, which implies a story for play and it shows ensembles of different customary and custom move types of Kerala like Theyyam, Kathakali, Ottanthullal, and Mohiniyattam. Kanjadalam; or lotus petal is the name allowed to the second floor, which is enhanced with entrancing wall painting canvases and has an etched wooden roof made of 60 outlines.
