Kannur in Kerala , the sea coast town in the northern Malabar coats, is vibrant with myths, legends and history. Once the capital of the Kolathiri Rajas, it has earned reputation for handloom and beedi industries. Unlike other tourist sites in Kerala , Kannur draws its trading spirit from its Portuguese history.
However, it would be wrong to describe Tours to Kannur only as a study of history and legends. The most enchanting district of Northern Kerala kissed by the Lakshadweep Sea, decked by the palm-fringed coasts and treaded by a network of rivers, Kannur speaks for its own identity in the map of tourism in Kerala.
