Kannur— 7 nights
Land of Looms and Lores
A cultural capital on the state's relatively quiet northern coast, Kannur has long been associated with textile production and temple rituals, earning it the nickname, the "Land of Looms and Lores." Most Kannur itineraries will include observing theyyam rituals performed at the temples, where the traditions have origins dating back thousands of years.Get out of town with these interesting Kannur side-trips: Thalassery (Overbury's Folly, Sea View Park, & more), Parassinikadavu Muthappan Temple (in Parassinikadavu) and Valiyaparamba Backwaters (in Bekal). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Paithalmala, enjoy the sea views from Cannanore Lighthouse, get engrossed in the history at Arakkal Museum, and steep yourself in history at Tellicherry Fort.
