Kannur - The Land of forts and beaches

On to the North of Kerala, sandwiched between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea, lies Kannur, anglicised as Cannanore. This stretch of land, with every inch in history, has been a melting pot of races, religions and cultures from time immemorial. Relics, right from the Neolothic age through the Aryan invasion, Cheran Conquests, Arab and European inroads, stand testimony to this.

Apart from greenery and beaches, Kannur invites tourists to a host of timeless monuments to feel the grave quietness and the tranquility of the past and to share the warmth and cordiality of its peaceful and soft spoken people.
