Kannur (Cannanore)

Kannur also called Cannanore, lies between Calicut and Kasargod districts. The place is also blessed with a lengthy sea side and has many rivers. Historic Kannur, a cauldron of various cultures and a centre of traditional arts and crafts is fast becoming a major tourist destination.

The handlooms, handicrafts and the cultural arts of Kannur are already hot favourites with visitors. The Muzhappilangad beach, which will soon become an international resort, adds to the lure of this northern district. Steeped in history, the city of Thalassery also offers several natural and cultural attractions.

It is the seat of the traditional martial art form of Kerala – Kalari-payattu. The best circus artists of the country invariably belong here.
