Situated in southern India between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea, Kozhikode has been attracting travelers from antiquity. The city is also known by its Anglicized version, Calicut. Lured by the spice trade, Phoenicians, Arabs and Chinese headed for its shores. When Vasco Da Gama landed on its shores in 1498, he paved the way for the Dutch, the French and later the English. As the major trading point of eastern spices, Kozhikode was dubbed the “City of Spices”. The city of Kozhikode was founded in 1042 AD. The word Calicut derived from Calico, hand-woven cotton cloth that was exported from Kozhikode. Kozhikode was the capital of Kingdom of Samoothiris or the Zamorin. The Samoothiri became powerful among the Kings of Kerala due to the flourishing international trade.More
