Kuchipudi

Kuchipudi is one of the eleven major Indian classical dances.It originated in a village named Kuchipudi in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
Kuchipudi is a dance-drama performance, with its roots in the ancient Hindu Sanskrit text of Natya Shastra.

It developed as a religious art linked to traveling bards, temples and spiritual beliefs, like all major classical dances of India. Evidence of Kuchipudi’s existence in an older version are found in copper inscriptions of the 10th century, and by the 15th century in texts such as the Machupalli Kaifat. Kuchipudi tradition holds that Tirtha Narayana Yati – a sanyassin of Advaita Vedanta persuasion and his disciple, an orphan named Siddhendra Yogi, founded and systematized the modern version of Kuchipudi in the 17th centur.

Kuchipudi largely developed as a Hindu god Krishna-oriented Vaishnavism tradition, and it is most closely related to Bhagavata Mela performance art found in Tamil Nadu.

It was an amazing stay on top of the hill in the middle of greenery and fresh air to breathe. And what more can you ask when you get fresh homemade food to eat. It's a kid friendly location so kids got to enjoy most with the nature around and explore their own world of adventures.

Good place to stay out of the hustle bustle noise...we had relaxing time here with family. . Room are very large and spacious, cool breeze in this hot summer. Host tries to make it more comfortable for all .. we arrived late in the night around 11:30 by bus and host was constantly in touch with us, restaurants nearby were closed due to local festival but host got us breakfast. I would recommend this place for a breakaway and relaxation..
Great atmosphere , good place which was completely booked. I enjoyed all the activities. I loved my room since it was comfortable and large. The food there was fantastic and very tasty. The staff was very helpful and attentive. They guided me to the Valiyaparamba Backwaters.
