About kozhikode

Kozhikode, formerly known as Calicut, is the largest city in Northern Kerala. Once a prosperous trading town, Kozhikode was also the capital of the formidable Zamorin dynasty. Situated on the Malabar Coast, Kozhikode’s beaches are quite an attraction for tourists. The two beaches include Kozhikode Beach and the Kappad Beach. Also popular among tourists are the Art Gallery, the Kirtads Museum, Krishna Menon Museum and Art Gallery, Planetarium and the Sarovaram Bio Park. \r\n\r\nFor more religiously inclined tourists, there are plenty of places to worship around the city. Some of these include the Thali Temple, Shiva Temple, Jain Derasar, Mishkal Masjidh, and Gotheshwaram Beach Temple. If you are looking to take away a souvenir, Kairaly Handicrafts sells wooden models of elephants, boats, and dancers. Be sure to sample the wheat-based sweet delicacies that are extremely popular in this region, and the two most popular kinds include the Kozhikodan Halva and the Karutha Halva.
