Encircling the Mananchira pond in Calicut is the beautiful area called the Mananchira Square. The pond, which has a historical significance, was built in the 14th Century by the feudal king Mana Vikrama as a bathing pool. The Square is a park complex that was built in 1994, and was originally known as the Mananchira Midamanam (playground). The playground has now been converted to a pleasant arcadia complete with shrubs, trees, sculptures and an artificial hill. Visitors can witness live performances in the open-air theatre and enjoy the spectacular musical fountain here. This Square is an architectural delight located right in the heart of Kozhikode district and it promises to wow the visitors with its charm.

  • It is a very good ground where all the children play together and even the older people come to play there. It is the most wonderful ground in the heart of the city. This ground reminds me of my childhood days where i used to go with my elder brother to play cricket. It the ground where my ancestors used to play with there friends and i am just following there path. I was with my family when i was at the ground for the first time. The ground is owned by the members of the panchayat and they really have taken initiative to level up the ground to another level.

  • During the olden days, it was a busy playground right in the middle of a bustling city. Now the ground is part of a larger park called Mananchira Square formed by combining the Ansari & Tagore parks, Mananchira pond and the ground. Its a favorite destination of the casual visitors to the city. Nice place to relax during the evenings. A green isle in the heart of the city.
