Sargaalaya Kerala Arts & Craft Village at Iringal, near Vadakara, which was closed down on account of Covid-19, will reopen on Tuesday, ensuring the safety of the visitors. CEO PP Bhaskaran informed that the visiting time would be from 10 am to 6 pm.

The craftsperson cottages inside the Village display handicrafts including terracotta mural, terracotta jewellery, woodcrafts, sculptures of metal, concrete and clay, paintings, dry flower, sea shells, seed crafts, ornaments, handlooms and many more.

 

Utensils and home decor made of coconut stem, coconut shell, coconut fibre, cane, bamboo, screw pine, hay, sisal fibre and leather, along with many useful home appliances and furniture including clay utensils, office furniture, bamboo products and textiles are also on display. The visitors can also watch craftsmen making those products.

Pedal boating and speed boating are some of the other attractions in the Village. The traditional food court has an aquarium and emporium too. Ample parking facilities and executive rooms make Sargaalaya a favourite spot for the visitors. Uralungal Labour Contract Cooperative Society (ULCCS) takes care of the Village for Kerala Tourism Department.

Sargaalaya, which functions based on responsible tourism, opens the best opportunities for traditional artisans in Kerala and outside. The Village promotes conventional arts and crafts by providing permanent space for the artisans to stay, create, display and sell their products. The annual fair conducted in December and January attracts crowds from various corners of the country and abroad.

The Village has won national honour for the best village tourism project and South Asia Travel Award for the best tourism project in the state.

Ticket charges are priced at Rs 50 for adults and Rs 40 for kids. There are attractive packages for schools and tourists in groups.
