Thousands of years after they had sailed the high seas, Vasco de Gama considered these ancient, hardy vessels of Beypore Port equal to his more ‘modern’ ships. Called ‘dhows’ in Arabic or ‘urus’ in Malayalam, they were first noticed by Arab traders in the first century AD, these boats swiftly earned world-renowned status as they were recognized across the globe from ancient Europe and Mesopotamia, to China and Malaysia. They are even said to have played a part in Admiral Nelson’s victory over the French in the Battle of Trafalgar!
Beypore is one of the best site seeing places in Kerala. It’s located at the mouth of the Chaliyar river near Kozhikode, and travelers feel as though they’ve stepped back into the past. Huge granite anchors casually lie on the wayside. The beat of wood on wood announces your entry into the boat building yards (although a smaller operation today, it’s a fascinating sight) where boats are still built, mostly for rich clients in the Middle East. Old stone piers for the fishing fleet extend into the sea. You can also take a walk along the backwaters as the Arabian Sea swirls on either side of as your only companion
