Rich in history and culture, India has so many various architecture. The Channakeshava temple is one of the best Hoysalan Temples I have visited in South India. It’s located 35 km from Mysuru. After seeing the pictures of this intricate architectural glory, I put it as the number one must-visit spot in my South India bucket list.

I went to watch Kerala traditional drama show – Kathakali during my trip in Kochi city. It was quite memorable. Kathakali is one of the major forms of classical Indian dance. I was so impressed by its elaborately colorful make-ups, costumes and face masks. Kathakali = Katha ( story) + Kali ( dance), it uses a very interesting way of storytelling.

在印度南部科钦旅游的时候，我去观看了喀拉拉邦著名的传统戏剧卡塔卡利，让我印象深刻。作为印度歌剧主要流派之一，卡塔卡利以它色彩斑斓的化妆，服饰和面具而闻名。卡塔卡利字面的意思其实是故事加上音乐。这个形式的歌剧的叙事方法其实很有意思，利用沉重夸张的化妆服饰和道具。 Continue reading Watching Indian traditional Kathakali show in Kochi, Kerala. 在印度科钦观赏喀拉拉邦的传统戏剧
