Question Thread Title:  God’s own country - Kerala

Kerala also known as the 'God in God's Own Country' boast of physical and natural attributes that attract a lot of tourists every year from India as well as abroad. Besides the physical beauty, Kerala has a rich cultural heritage, which fascinates the tourists a lot. The art and culture of Kerala portrays various dance forms and martial arts performed with the accompaniment of vocal and instrumental music. All these art forms are performed during some celebration or festivity. Bharata Natyam is the oldest form of classical dance in India. Origin of this style of dance can be traced to the Natya Sastra written around 4000 BC by sage Bharatha. Known as the 'Poetry in Motion', this dance form was originally known as 'dasi attam,' a temple dance performed by young women called 'devadasis.' Bharata Natyam is most commonly performed by women rarely by men. Strict guidelines are laid down describing every single aspect of the dance form including the attributes required to be an accomplished dancer. Chakyarkoothu, also called koothu, is one of the oldest classical theatre arts of Kerala. It is a solo dance is usually performed in the koothambalam of temples to the accompaniment of the mizhavu and elathalam. The performance starts with the invocation of the presiding deity of the temple. The narration of the story, generally picked from the Epics, is portrayed with the thandava dance movements, gestures and facial expression according to the guidelines given in the Natya Sastra. Koothu is marked for the presence of comic element, which adds to its dramatic character. The costume worn during the performance is colorful and unconventional with an unusual headgear.

if not mistaken Kerala is the south part of India, am I right. In that place where the 3 rivers meet, yeah that is pretty interesting with old structure and history to look upon. Good luck to Kerala. Derickson, Tennessee Limo

I do agree that Kerala is a very interesting area in India to visit. Yeah I too guess that three rivers ends and meet in Kerala, their is also an old Catholic church in that area and if not mistaken is built beside the site atop a stone. Aside from that they have lots of beautiful beaches to offer.

You can watch the backwaters in Kovalam and Cochin. Kerala is surrounded oneside by the long Arabic sea and the other by the western ghats which keeps it fit for all the occassions but visiting Keraa in the monsoon season is a disastress one.
