Culture of kannur

Kannur is known as the city of 'looms and lores' alluding to the industries of textile manufacturing and the ritual performance of Theyyam. It is also known as the 'Crown of Kerala' owing to its natural location - sandwiched between the Western Ghats and the Lakshadweep Sea. Whether you are visiting Kannur to relax on its beach shores (Baby Beach and Payyambalam Beach are excellent choices), or to make a trip around the many temples scattered in and around Kannur, this beach town promises a relaxed environment to soak it all in. You may take a trip to Valapattanam to learn all about this small timber-trading town, or explore the historic forts and residences like St. Angelo Fort and Arakkal Kettu.
