Kannur fort- Kerala
A place that associates itself with Hindu God, Lord
Krishna and the great King Solomon who stopped here to collect timber
to be used for the construction of the Temple of the Lord at
Jerusalem. The latter connection with King Solomon finds mention in
the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea, an ancient Greek work. To add to
this is the praiseworthy remarks of the renowned traveller, Marco
Polo, who called it a "great emporium of spice trade".
Welcome to Kannur! Aland that revels in historical and legendary anecdotes. According to one historical story, a princess was once saved by a Muslim youth and they subsequently fell for each other. The father of the princess agreed to the marriage and thus paved way for the foundation of the only Muslim royal family in the state of Kerala.
For a tourist, Kannur holds forth a number of attractions. Just walk along its shoreline, play with its sea water as well as backwater, enter the sacred temples, purchase the handloom products or forget yourself while watching Theyyam(an ancient ritualistic folk art) in any of the Kannur Kavus -the choice is yours.
Interacting with the people and knowing their custom over a traditional Keralese dinner is also an excellent option if you desire. Kannur will instill in you a freshness not just with its beauty but also with its overall ambiance.
