Kozhikode (Calicut)

Kozhikode (also known as Calicut) is one of the major metro cities in Kerala, on the south-west coast of the Arabian Sea. Basking in the idyllic setting of the serene Arabian Sea on the west and mesmeric peaks of the Wayanad Hills on the east, this district has all the required ingredients to fascinate a tourist. Dubbed the 'city of spices', it is the third largest city in Kerala. Interestingly, the name Calicut is derived from 'calico', the fine variety of hand-woven cloth said to have originated from this place. The city is famous for its beaches, especially Kappad (where the Portuguese explorer, Vasco-da-Gama, landed) and Beypore (where 'Uru', the small wooden ships, are made manually with intrinsic wood carvings).
