Unnayi Warrier Smaraka Kalanilayam

The Unnayi Warrier Samaraka Kalanilayam, located at Irinjalakkuda, was established on 7th December 1955, in memory of Unnayi Warrier, whose name is noted for the immense contribution and efforts shown in the promotion of Kathakali. This Kathakali training institute has an auditorium, guest house and a hostel. 

The institute will train students in Attaprakaram (style of performance) and various workshop and reviews are also done to make the people aware of ‘mudras’ and stage performance. 

Every year the institute gives away Unnayi Warrier prize to the upcoming artistes of Kathakali. The Kalanilayam is situated very near to the Koodalmanickyam Temple in Thrissur.
