Lying at the northern tip of Kerala bounded by the Western ghats in the east and Arabian sea in the west; twelve rivers flowing across its terrain, Kasaragod is an enchanting beauty of Nature's creations.
There are different views on the derivation of the name "KASARAGOD". One view is that it is the combination of two Sanskrit words kaasaara (which means lake or pond) and kroda (which means a place where treasure is kept).
Kasaragod has a very rich heritage and historical importance. The Bekal fort, which is of great historical and archaeological interest, is the largest and best preserved of its kind in Kerala.
The district is famous for the art forms of Yakshagana, Bombe-yattu and Theyyam. Traditional art forms of pulikkali, oppana etc adds colour to festivals.
Kasaragod is a land of Temples, Mosques and Churches. Shashti festival & Boothasthanam of Hindus, Makham Uroos of Muslims and Perunnals of Christians are celeberated here.
The landscape of Kasaragod includs beautiful hills, lengthy sandy beaches, Forts and Rivers. Visiting to these places evoke enthralling moments to the tourists.
