The Indian state of Kerala, popularly known as 'GOD'S OWN COUNTRY', has tremendous tourism potential. Visitors to Kerala usually throng the back waters and a couple of beaches like Kovalam and Varkala, in the central and southern part, overlooking the rest of this land, equally blessed with nature's bounty.
The idea of a 4 star facility hotel, HOTEL POLARIZ, was conceived to attract tourists, both national and international, who felt the need for a quality stay matching international standards in hospitality, in the northern part of Kerala. Though rests at a serene locality, away from the hustle bustles of city life, Hotel Polariz offers everything a guest expects of a modern retreat. Probably, the most unique feature Hotel Polariz could offer is "fresh air" that a city hotel can't afford to provide. The ambience of the hotel and surroundings are all about "relax and explore the unseen". Polariz is surrounded by a number of scenic touristic destinations so far not many have heard or seen.
We have taken up the challenge of putting the region in the tourism map of India as a must visit destination.
Hotel Polariz is strategically well located when it comes to visiting various places around Kannur including famous temples like The Parassinikkadavu Muthappan Temple, Sree Rajarajeshwara Temple, Madayikaavu Temple and more, institutes like the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Government College of Engineering (GCEK), Pariyaaram Medical College; Tourist attractions like Payambalam Beach, St. Angelo’s Fort and Kannur’s Lighthouse Museum are just half an hour away.
Parassinikkadavu is noted for the famous Muthappan temple where people go for worshipping Sree Muthappan. This is the only Hindu Temple in Kerala where a Theyyam performance is a daily ritual offering.
Tradition has it that for the Annual Festival, Ulsavam, of the Muthappan Temple at Parassinikkadavu to start, a procession led by a female member of the "Thayyil" clan of Thayyil, Kannur begins from the family home and terminates at the main altar of the temple with a 'pooja' (prayer) to the Gods.
Parassinkkadavu is also noted for the Parassinikkadavu Snake Park which is committed to the preservation and conservation of snakes. There are about 150 varieties of snakes including the spectacled cobra, King cobra, Russell's viper, Krait and Pit Viper living in the park.
A research laboratory to extract venom from snakes is proposed here. The park also has a large collection of non-poisonous snakes including pythons.
Vismaya Water Theme park is situated at Parassinikkadavu
