Welcome to Kerala Info, No:1 Information portal in Kerala


Kerala, the God's own country, has different kinds of cultures and heritages. Different religions, ethnicities, and dialects differentiate Kerala from others. The southern states - Kerala, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu - have the culture of Dravids. At the same time, Kerala has borrowed some cultures from both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The main language of Kerala is Malayalam and they are known as Malayalees. They have different types of cultures in dressing, festivals, martial arts, linguistics, and art.

The traditional dress of Kerala is Mundu/Lungi for men and Saree for women. This type of dressing is considered the traditional dress of Kerala, while all other religions have their own separate dresses as per their religious perspective. Nowadays, the dressing culture of Kerala is fading slowly from its own culture.

The main heritage is performing Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, and Kalari (martial arts). These three performances are very familiar to visitors from abroad, as they are very interested to see Kathakali and Mohiniyattam. Kathakali is a classical dance of art with music, hand, and facial gestures, while Mohiniyattam is a semi-classical dance performed by women. The name "Mohiniyattam" is derived from "Mohini," a famous female avatar of God Vishnu. The Kalarippayattu - a kind of martial art - is another important heritage of Kerala, which integrates mind and body.

Each traditional festival of Kerala, such as Onam, Vishu, Eid, Thrissur Pooram, and many more, is celebrated widely among them. All festivals of Kerala bring a variety of celebration and heritage. So, visit Kerala at least once in your life, because it is another level of experience through the cultures and heritages.
