Allow Bekal to serve as the gateway for a memorable seven-day trip spanning north Malabar and culminating at Mysore’s majestic Palace – a befitting end to a trip that promises to please every historical enthusiast. Pay homage to the Ananthapura Lake Temple that bears the distinction of being Kerala’s only Lake Temple and spend a morning marvelling at the Bekal Fort – Kerala’s largest and most impeccably preserved fort that was built in AD 1650.
Make your way towards Kannur but only after making a pit stop at Madayipara to visit one of India’s oldest mosques built by Malik Ibn Dinar of Arabia during AD 1124. Also take in traces of an ancient Jew Settlement in the area with a visit to the “Jew’s Pond” monument.
Make the most of having Kannur as your base for two nights and check out Fort St. Angelo – a monument of historical importance in South India that has witnessed several significant battles. Take a journey back in time and travel to a bygone era at the Arakkal Museum, dedicated to Kerala’s only Muslim royal family and housed within the erstwhile durbar hall section of the Arakkal Royal Palace. Don’t miss visits to the Kannur Lighthouse and Cliff Walkway for breathtaking views of Kannur’s coastline and the Arabian Sea. Take a break from the historical hopping with a drive along the powdery shores of Muzhappilangad (dubbed Asia’s longest drive-in beach) located between Kannur and neighbouring Thalassery.
Travel onwards to Wayanad where you’ll be treated to an educational session on the process of tea-making at a tea estate. The next halt will be at the Edakkal Caves thought to be more than 3000 years old. A quick stop at Sultan Bathery and then onwards to majestic Mysore – home to the country’s most magnificent palace and an engineering marvel that was a forerunner for its times. An afternoon spent at the Srirangapatna island, located only 40 minutes from Mysore, will provide historical insights into the battles waged between Tipu Sultan and the British and throw light on how this had implications on world history.
