Constructed by a British Official, it is now a collection of waste water & effluents of the city. The side walls are in many places, in a dilapidated state. The water is almost devoid... More

Cannoly canal located in calicut, has got many good views especially the pedestrian bridges which connects to the mini bypass. But the sad thing is that the canal is polluted to the maximum such that it looses all the beauty it can provide. The water looks so dirty and its a breeding place of many infective organisms. Many people are... More

Canoly Canal has a rich history related to the British, especially to its British Collector Canoly. But the canal now is in a pathetic condition. But the area near by pass is so attractive thanks to the presence of Sarivaram park and Dream City. The renovation work is going on and once the project is completed, it will be an... More

It was a piece of some technical vision of the authorities long back-Inter linking of water bodies for easy transport of goods. The reality is that it is still functional in spite of the neglect post independence. The section near Ponnani is used for goods transport even today. However, the stretch within Kozhikode city needs vast improvement. If well maintained,... More
