Kozhikode beach was part of a glorious chapter in India’s freedom struggle, when many leaders braved colonial police batons to stage the Salt Satyagraha here. The Freedom Square will give a gist of that historical phase to the younger generation. The walls erected here as part of the project will also have plaques on Kozhikode’s trade relations with the Arabs, Chinese and the Portugese and the Zamorin rule. The project area includes the open stage where political conferences are now being held. Freedom Square is a space for—music, art, culture & literature to thrive.
