Published on : Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Thalassery is commonly known as the land of cricket, cakes and circus, with a culture combining different cultures due to its closeness to coast and influence of both French and British colonial rules.


Kerala Tourism’s ambitious Thalassery Heritage project aims enhancing the popularity of the heritage town in Kannur district thereby giving tourists an experience that highlights the culture, festivals, art, architecture, history and heritage of Kerala.


With assistance from the Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board (KIIFB), the Rs. 187.70 crore master plan prepared for the development of the circuit altogether will have Harbour Town, Pazhassi, Folklore and Cultural Circuits.


The project aims at conserving and exhibiting various heritage sites at Thalassery, one of the most historically significant locations in the Malabar region. Thalassery town will be the epicenter of the project and destinations in Mananthavady in Wayanad district and Vadakara in Kozhikode district will also be part of the circuits.


Conservation of the Thalassery pier; improvement of a food street, sculpture park at Pier Road, old fire tank and a performance centre and heritage street at Thazhe Angadi; and reuse of Gundert Bungalow as a language museum and German study centre will take place.
