Uncovering the Hidden Treasures of Calicut: A Complete Guide to the City
Shavi | 20th Aug 2020

The Malabar coastal region and the third-largest city in Kerala, Kozhikode formerly called Calicut, is situated in the northern part of the state. Having great cultural traditions and jargon of its own, the city is a major trading centre for spices and tiles and is sometimes known as the ‘land of spices’.

The name Kozhikode is derived from the words Koyil (palace) and Kodu (fortified). The city found its place in world history when Portuguese navigator Vasco De Gama discovered this as a sea route to India in 1498. Kozhikode is known by various names; Arabs called it Kalikat and Chinese Kalifa. During the conquest of Malabar, Tippu Sulthan tried to change the name of the city to Ferozabad.

The city is popular for its Kozhikodan Halwas, a sweet dish made with flour and jaggery, and the traditional Muslim food, especially seafood cuisines made out of prawns, crabs, and lobster and shell creatures are known as kallumakkaya or kadukka. Today, ancient monuments, Serene Beaches, historic sites, wildlife sanctuaries, rivers, hills, a unique culture, and a warm, friendly ambience make Kozhikode a much sought-after destination.
