The platform walls of the Kozhikode railway station now speak of the rich history, heritage, and culture of the celebrated city.
The Sargalaya Iringal Craft Village under the Tourism Department, in collaboration with the Community Assisted Railway Development Project, has painted the murals that welcome passengers on the first and fourth platforms.
The paintings were done by four artists from the craft village. Their works include depictions of the city’s ancient trade relations with foreign countries; its early rulers; musical legacy; and cultural peculiarities, among other things. The project with an estimated cost of Rs.75,000, also aims at inculcating a liking for art among the public.
