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.
Thalassery Fort and Sundareswara Temple will appeal to history buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Payyambalam Beach and Azhikkal Beach. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Thottada Beach, identify plant and animal life at Madayipara, stroll through KIzhunna Beach, and contemplate the long history of Fort St. Angelos.
