Often known as Calicut, Kozhikode is a city on the Malabar coast in the state of Kerala in southern India. Kozhikode is the state's largest urban area and the world's 195th largest urban city. For its position as the key trade point of Eastern spices, Kozhikode was called the "Capital of Spices" during classical antiquity and the Middle Ages. It was the capital of an autonomous kingdom ruled in the Middle Ages by the Samoothiris (Zamorins) and later the capital under British control of the former Malabar region.
Kozhikode is a city with a long-standing past. The city has been enticing tourists with its riches from time immemorial. For more than 500 years, Jews, Arabs, Phoenicians, and Chinese have been dealing in spices such as black pepper and cardamom. The Arab and Chinese merchants preferred it to all other ports, because Kozhikode offered complete freedom and protection. During the time of the Sri Samoothiri Maharajas, who ruled the area until the British took control, Kozhikode was the capital of Malabar.
Kozhikode is the birthplace of a society of genius and rich traditions. It is renowned for the traditional art forms of the Muslim cultures of Malabar, 'Mappilappattu', 'Kolkali' and 'Oppana'. The temple-based art forms prevalent in the district's northern regions are 'Thirayattam' and 'Theyyam'. The famous folk songs or ballads known as 'Vadakkan Pattuakal' praise the strength and strength of Kerala's martial art, the 'Kalaripayattu' and its legendary exponents, such as Thacholi Othenan, Chandhu Chekavar, Unniyarcha, Aromal Chekavar and others. During the month of 'Thulam,' the philosophical debates of Vedic scholars to win the rank of Pattathanam (Revathy Pattathanam) take place at Thali temple.
The melodies of Ghazals and Hindustani music are in Kozhikode 's heart, and the songs of Rafi Saheb, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh, Hemanth Da, Talat Mahmood, Manna Dey and others are smoking. The close association with the football game is characterised by the large following of supporters and the passion and spirit that is sustained throughout the FIFA World Cup and local football matches. Also known as SM Street, the 'Mittayi Theruvu' received its name from the 'Sweet Kozhikkodan Halwa' which was called Sweet Meat (SM) by the Europeans. It is a long street full of shops selling everything one might possibly need, for all its length. With its mouth-watering dishes such as 'Kozhikkodan Biriyani',' Chattippathiri',' Irachipathiri',' Elanchi',' Pazham Nirachathu',' Unnakkaya" Sulaimani'-the special Kozhikkodan lemon tea, and others, all eaten with affection, Kozhikode is Kerala's food city. Kozhikode 's special and accommodative community embraces the Onam, Vishu, Eid and Christmas festivals with fair pomp and joy.
