Did you know that the calico fabric was named after ‘Calicut’ which was the name given to Kozhikode by the British? It is also known as ‘Spice City’, and is the largest city in the Malabar region, as well as being one most visited by world travellers since classical antiquity. The Arabs have been trading here since the 7th century AD, and they’ve left their cultural and culinary imprint behind; as did the Portuguese (via Vasco da Gama), the French, the Dutch, and the English who all gained a foothold (in the form of factories and trading rights) and nothing more. This is the capital of the proud but hospitable Samoothiris (Zamorins) who ruled here since the Middle Ages, it is also of the setting of the erstwhile Malabar District that was established under British rule. Kozhikode is a city with a culture uniquely its own.
A major tourist destination today, Kozhikoke offers plenty of history and leisure. Famous for its boat-building yard, timber industry, and historic temples and churches, Kozhikode also offers a sumptuous variety of South Indian, North Indian, European, Chinese, Arab, Gujarati and Jain food. Kozhikode cuisine bears markedly European and Arabic influences and is famous for its 'Halwa' made from flour and sugar
