Architecture of the Greenix Village

The Greenix Village, which was once a warehouse for a tea factory built by the Portuguese, has now been renovated according to the traditional Kerala architecture. The interiors of the building that also houses the idol of Natarajan and a mandapam situated in the far end of the hall, give the structure a very temple-like feel to it. It also has different statues that showcase different art forms. The paintings exhibited in the Greenix Village portray the various mudras (hand gestures) and navarasams (nine expressions) that are considered to be of great importance in Kathakali performances. The village also gives a platform for various live dance performances including Kathakali, Theyam, Kalaripayattu and Mohiniattam.
