Calicut Flights Guide
Today known as Kozhikode, the city is the third largest in Kerala. It was in the 15th century that the first European landed on India’s western coast near to Calicut, a Portuguese sailor named Vasco de Gama. Since before then, the city had been a center for spice trade, and today “calico”, which refers to the textile, comes from the city’s former name.
The Kirtads Museum is a good place to start, which has information and exhibits on the history of the area, from the Kerala tribes and Zamorins to the traders of the middle ages and beyond. In the city one can appreciate the city’s Tali Temple, which is the oldest temple in the region. Calicut is the gateway to many breathtaking villages and natural scenes dotting the state. Nature enthusiasts with an appetite for hiking should find their way to Tusharagiri. History buffs will admire the excellently-preserved Lokanarkavu Bhagavathi Temple in the town of Vadakara. Another picture-perfect town outside the city is Elathur. As the city and neighboring Malappuram are both dense with historic attractions, it will behoove the traveler to spend several days there.
