Ancient Shiva Temple

It's a great temple to visit, with a lot of ancient importance and good too see wood walls that the temple is made of. It's very calming as I went about 5 pm and there were only 3 people including me. One can sit and just soak up the Serena atmosphere. One thing that we need to remember is that this temple is open in the morning 8-11. 30 and evening 5-8 pm I guess. Men are not allowed to enter earring shirts, tshirts, trousers, lungis etc. So you can hire a dhoti for a nominal 10 rupees and they store your belongings too. You are allowed to carry your phone and wallet inside with you. A must visit when you are in Kozhikode.

An old temple in Calicut

One of the oldest temple in Calicut which is situated in the center of the city. Used to visit this temple whenever I visited Calicut. You will feel blessed in an evening visit.

Tali - The grand Shiva temple in Kozhikode

Tali Siva Temple is so atmospheric with the unique ambiance of a temple. Situated at a place called Tali, close to Palayam, it is an ancient temple. There is dress code to observe. You can see the 'agraharams' close by. There is another temple on the north side for Ganesha and Subramanya. The place is filled with a divine atmosphere especially in the morning and evening.

Go in Dhoti only

Only Hindus can go. You can wear only Dhoti in the bottoms. Nothing to cover your chest. You can hire Dhoti at rent of INR 10 outside the temple. The temple is beautiful in the evening.
