The skill of the handicraftsmen in Kerala is renowned. If you wish to get a firsthand experience of this, head to Kumarakom Craft Museum. From decorated pottery to miniature elephants made of clay, from hand fans to multicolored Kathakali ornamentation made of coir, from miniature snake boats to idols of deities carved out of wood, everything here is amusing. You can also see the Aranmula Kannadi— a traditional metal-alloy mirror, and century-old items in the museum. It is also the best place to buy souvenirs for your loved ones back home.
