Mananchira Square - Review

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 and big Park in the heart of Kozhikode city. It have a very good and cool atmosphere. Have a very big place for playing for kids and others. It have a small lake, but useless. And also the park have some benches and others for sitting for the public, but you cannot use that as it is already filled with people sleeping over there. I felt shame for seeing this park like this. I hope our people will change in the coming days. There is no shelters if there is a rain.

  • NICE BUT MAINTENANCE IS POOR, CLEANLINESS. SUCH A GARDEN MUST BE MAINTAINED BEAUTIFULLY FOR NEATLY FOR FUTURE it have plenty of water but poor greenery, plants, flowers and gardening as compared to such important gardens. its a golden place to be maintained neatly.

  • It's located on the middle of rush city. One side you can see the busy street and also the famous SM street. But when you enter the place, it is completely different. There is greenery all over. Shades, park, waterbody, giant trees makes you feel like you are detached from the rush of the city. The entry is free as well as there is free WiFi. Student, elders, kids, and aged people used to come to breath the fresh air inside. It's one of a rarest place as it completely makes you refresh.

  • One of the best place to hangout with your family friends even with your girlfriend. The square is open after noon so the people can find some peace during evening after having lunch. The place provide a historical touch to Bing out our memories and provide us with a cold surrounding. The square provide us with food and dessert with playable toys for kids It is also a very nice place for your first date to go on. The place is surrounded by road but they do keep the sound pollution very low and need the water clean. The water which is provided to many homes and companys are taken from the water bodies of this square.

  • One of the cultural destination i would say. You can see people of different age, culture and all at this place relaxing on the grass... Even though situated at the heart of the city, there are places which gives you enough calmness. More additions will make the place much more exciting and family friendly.
