Kozhikode (Calicut), the most important region of Malabar in yesteryears, was the capital of the powerful Zamorins and also a prominent trade and commerce centre.Kozhikode district found a place in the world history with the discovery of the sea route to India in 1498 by the Portuguese navigator Vasco Da Gama. Vasco Da Gama landed at the Kappad sea shore with three vessels and 170 men. A monument is constucted here to commemorate the historical landing.

Kozhikode city continues to be a centre of flourishing domestic and international trade. Its contribution to the all round development of the district in trade, commerce and economic development over the years is spectacular.
