Abracadabra! The moment these words are uttered, our attention is naturally drawn to the voice, and to the owner of the voice. Everybody likes magic, there is no age limit for enjoying it. One of the main reasons why people love magic is because they like the mystery and suspense in it, and when the magician finishes his trick, the people in the audience try their best to find the logic behind it.

If you love magic and enjoyed magic shows in your childhood, then here is a chance to relive it once again in a much grander fashion. There is a whole new perspective of magic at Kazhakoottam, Trivandrum, a whole 1.5 acres of it.
