Kozhikode : Opening up the gateway of India to Vasco-da-Gama the adventurous Portuguese navigator in 1498, Kozhikode has carved for itself a landmark in the history of India. The land of the ancient Zamorins had many more things to offer to the western world other than the savoury spices for which they even ventured to discover a sea route. Occupying a prominent place in the international trade map of the country right from the 13th century Kozhikode paved the way for trade tourism in India. This trade centre is regaining much of its ancient glory by opening up air routes to Persian Gulf and other regions.
