Mananchira Square
 

Mananchira Square Opened in 1994, Mananchira Square is a vast open ground located in the heart of the city. In fact, the city of Kozhikode is marked by Mananchira. It was once the main courtyard of the Zamorin's palace. The main attraction here is a large pond and a park. The place is named after this pond of the palace of the erstwhile Zamorin ruler, King Mana Vikrama, known as Mana-Devan's Chira (Pond) which was later changed to Mananchira.

Supervised by the City Corporation, the park has meticulously landscaped lawns with trees, plants, an artificial stream and hill, sculptures and an open-air theater. The entire maithan is lined by 250 lampposts designed in colonial style, each post with a pair of lamps. The musical fountain inside the maidan and the beautiful lawn surrounded by traditional Kerala style buildings fascinate visitors. Commonwealth Trust Office, one of the city's oldest organisation and major establishments such as the Town hall, Lalitakala Academy hall, public library, Jama'atpalli mosque and Muchhandipalli mosque are situated around the square.
