A small yet busy city, Kozhikode or Calicut, is a place that is located towards the northern part of Kerala. It is not just a harbor but a land of splendid beaches, aromatic spices like black pepper and cardamom, pleasing country sides and warm people.
The town was long conquered by foreign powers and has much historical significance. Despite the Western influence, Kozhikode has its own unique identity and is proud of its culture and tradition. Apart from this, Kozhikode was the place where Vasco da Gama landed and discovered the route to India via the southern cape of Africa. The place has been the major attraction for many countries as trade is easily carried out from this region.
The well established connections with Kerala help you reach Kozhikode easily by railways, airways and buses.
