Beypore Overview

Beypore is a small coastal town in the state of Kerala. It was formerly known as Beypuram. In the old days, Tippu Sultan had named it Sultan Pattanam. The place was also known as Vaypura / Vadaparappanad. Beypore is one of the oldest ports of Kerala which facilitated trading with Middle East. Some historical findings have suggested direct trade connections with Mesopotamia. It was also a prominent link for the maritime silk route.

The town is famous for building wooden ships, called Dhows or Urus. However, in the present day scenario, wooden ships have lost their demand and the artisans have shifted to making model pieces of these giant ships to be sold as souvenirs. This small town has some serene beaches, old lighthouses and harbours, ship building yards and other tourist attractions. Beypore is a popular learning centre for hand weaving techniques. Chaliyar Puzha, the fourth-longest river of Kerala flows through the town of Beypore.
