Kannur – STD Code 0497

Kannur’s days of glory were under the Kolathiri Rajas, and its importance as a spice trading port was noted by Marco Polo.

From the 15th century various colonial powers, including the Portuguese, Dutch and British, exerted their influence over this rich Malabar Coast region. Most of the Kannur’s sites are a few kms out of town.
