Arakkal Kettu or Arakkal Royal Palace was once the seat of the only Muslim Royal Family in Kerala, Arakkal Ali Rajas. It is a must-visit historical destination in Kannur that narrates the story of a bygone era.
A section of the palace has been converted to a museum that displays the artefacts of the Arakkal family including the family seal, the pathayam (the wooden box in which grain was stored), document box, royal copies of the Holy Quran, an old-fashioned telephone, swords and daggers used by the rulers, and a telescope.
The museum is closed on Mondays.
The temple is considered the epicentre of Onam celebrations across Kerala.
Annually the church witnesses the participation of a large number of people from around the globe.
Thousands of devotees immersed in prayers carrying wooden crosses of different sizes and ambling up a hill; a whole village getting decked up and readying itself to welcome these pilgrims.
Once a year, the River Pamba gets enlivened as an elaborately decorated snake boat glides across its placid waters bearing the provisions for a grand feast
Pooram Purappadu, Uthram Vilakku and Vrischika Ekadasi are the popular festivals
