About Kannur

Kannur is popularly known as the land of looms and lores. The word meaning is derived from the two words namely Kannan (Lord Krishna) and Ur (place) From time immemorial Kannur has been a cradle of folk arts and music including Kalarippayattu, the popular martial art. Even today the myriads of Kavus (small shrines) which dot the district are centers of Theyyam, a ritual dance in which men impersonate supernatural beings. The Rajas of Chirakkal and the Biwis of Arackal accorded a warm welcome to the foreign traders who later colonized Kannur. The Fort De Angelo is a perfect example of Portuguese architecture. The Mosque of Madai, constructed way back in 1124 AD with marble shipped from Mecca is an important place of worship. Devotees throng the temple of Sri Muthappan at Parassinikkadavu and Sri Rajarajeswara temple at Taliparamba, both within 20 km from Kannur. The Holy Trinity Church at Burnasserry is the oldest in Kannur. The beautiful beaches at Payyambalam, Muzhappilangad drive-in beach are nature's boon to Kannur.
