Kasaragod, the northern-most district of Kerala, is blessed with nature’s bounty, thanks to the Western Ghats in the east, the Arabian Sea on the west and the 12 rivers and many streams criss-crossing the land.

It is also a land of forts, mosques, churches and temples. History lingers in the soil of Kasaragod and almost every part of the district has one or two myths and legends related to it. The place had great military significance, as is obvious by the presence of the forts here. It was also a region that embraced various cultures and religions.

Many Arab travellers came to Kerala between the 9th and 14th centuries. The Maliq Dinar Mosque, the Bela church, the Jain Bastis and the various ancient temples in the area speak volumes about the cultural interaction that the land facilitated with the foreigners.
