Land of Looms and Lores

A cultural capital on the state's relatively quiet northern coast, Kannur has long been associated with textile production and temple rituals, earning it the nickname, the "Land of Looms and Lores." Most Kannur itineraries will include observing theyyam rituals performed at the temples, where the traditions have origins dating back thousands of years. A holiday in Kannur may also involve some time at the unspoiled beaches, but note the requirement of modest dress, given the beliefs and customs of the primarily Muslim populace. Put Kannur at the heart of your travel plans by using our India trip generator.
