serene beaches, emerald green countryside, historic sites, wildlife sanctuaries, rivers, hills etc add beauty to the district. Bound by the Arabian sea on the west, Kozhikode is a must-visit place.

Though it is well known for timber industry, other sectors like handloom, coir, cashew, bricks and handycrafts also flourish here.
