Founded in 1930 by renowned poet
Padmabhooshan Vallathol Narayana Menon along the banks of the
river Nila in the Cheruthuruthy village of Thrissur District,
Kalamandalam is an immortal name in the cultural map of the
world. Kalamandalam is strictly a residential center of
learning. Veteran teachers and talented students are its
inestimable wealth. For art-recitals held in Kalamandalam and
outside, artiste-teachers and students participate.
