Beypore Beach Kozhikode Rd, Beypore, Kozhikode
Beypore was an important old port connecting India to the rest of the world. Beypore still practices the art of making Uru's which are large wooden ships made entirely of wood. These ships were a mainstay in India's trading past, these days Uru's made in Beypore are commissioned work done mostly for Arabs. Shops in and around Beypore sell ship replicas which can be commissioned or bought from the shelf. They also make ships in a bottle which is an entirely unique art as the entire ship is assembled inside the bottle. If you are lucky you might be able to see an artisan making these ships.
