Kottakunnu is famous for the ruins of an old fort, which is situated at the base of the cantonment hill. It is believed that the fort was constructed by the Zamorins of Kozhikode and houses Vettakkorumakan Temple and the Shiva Temple. Renowned for its architecture, these temples are famous for housing murals of Malabar. Possessing rich historical significance, the site is renowned as the death place of Variyan kunnath Kunjahammed Haji, a revolutionary. In 1921, he was shot dead by British savagery in the premises of this site. Kottakunnu is planned to be transformed into an attractive park by District Tourism Promotion Councils and plans are driven to establish a stadium in its vicinity.
