The village itself is now in the name ‘Mankulam Gramam’, named by the Kandalloor Panchayat, where the Mankulam Kathakali Heritage Centre exists. Here flourished artists in plenty, from the Mankulam Kalari and cherished as Sri Inchaykkattu Ramachandran Pillai, Late Smt.Chavara Parukkutty, Chirakkara Madhavan Kutty, Pandalam Kerala Varma and so on. This land Onattukara is rich with its artistic treasure, which had own Thoppil Kathakali Yogam with Sri.Mankulam Vishnu Namboothiri and his colleagues once. The Southern Style was practiced here which gave more importance in beautifying the emotions along with the perfection in the steps and dance. West of Kayamkulam lies the Centre, with annual programmes on the birthday of the great thespian, monuments and theatres. Simple, silent and proud a place, filled with the mesmerizing memories of an amazing performer! On 19 th of April 1981, the proud and devout journey of Sri. Mankulam Vishnu Namboothiri came to an end.
