Kozhikode District Website
Kozhikode District - Most important City of Malabar Region - Ruled by the highly Cultured and Powerful Zamorins .
The history of Kozhikode district as an administrative unit begins from January 1957. When the states of the Indian Union were reorganised on linguistic basis on 1st November, 1956, the erstwhile Malabar district was separated from Madras state (Tamil Nadu) and added to the new unilingual state of Kerala. But malabar district was found to be too uniwieldy for administrative purposes.
The Kozhikode district thus came into existence on 1st Jnauary 1957,orginally consisting of five taluks, Viz, Vadakara, Koyilandy, Kozhikode, Ernad & Tirur.
"MALABAR MAHOTSAVAM", the annual tourism festival of Kozhikode, which is celebrated in winter , every year since 1992, is the best among them all.
