Top Historical Activities in Calicut

Also known as Kohikode, Calicut is rich with cultural and historical attractions that offer a testimony to the past. Vasco da Gama set foot for the first time in Kappad and that is why this location holds an extreme importance and there is a small stone monument at the beach to commemorate that event. You can also visit the Pazhassirajah Museum which is located on the East Hill and exhibits mural paintings, antique bronzes, old coins, models of temples, and megalithic structures for historic interest. There are two crumbling piers which are more than hundred years old, and still stand at Kozhikode beach and are of much interest to the visitors who wish to see something historic in the city. The most beautiful of the historic attractions here is Mananchira, which was the palace tank of King Mana Vikrama. Today, it has been converted into a traditional architectural splendor with carpeted green grass, flanked by stunning buildings. You can relax here and enjoy the rhythms of its musical fountain.
