Sargalaya Crafts village is good 45 kilometers from Calicut City and a plausible getaway .you can see the entire village in couple of hours and it's open till 6 pm in the evening .you can also park your vehicle inside the compound where you have to pay a nominal fee at the entrance.

The village hosts many craftsman and mural artists who display their wares at the stalls for sale.Ideal place if you like to explore new artistic marvels made in different canvas and materials.

Sargaalaya is an Arts & Crafts Village established by the Kerala tourism department. It is located just off the main Kozhikode Kannur National Highway in Iringal in a 20 acre area. We visited this village during our recent trip to Kerala while driving from Kozhikode to Kannur.
The complete complex is built using laterite rock which gives it a unique look. It has a huge number of stalls selling various ethnic crafts and it also houses the Crafts Design and Technology Development Centre, which provides training for craftsmen to learn new techniques in traditional handicrafts. Some of stalls are very unique and nearly all stalls are outlets for sale of the products on display. The annual International Arts & Crafts Festival is held here from 20th Dec to 05th Jan every year, which attracts artisans from all over the world to register. It is also the biggest handicraft fair of South India.
The village is located on the banks of the Moorad River and has recreational boating facilities of rowing and paddle boats. The place is a must visit for anyone driving by.

Worth visiting, Good initiative to promote local handicrafts by giving such platform.Only negative part is communicating with people there as all knows only local language not even a word of Hindi or English. It’s very surprising. They must think on it.

Sargaalaya arts and crafts village was established in 2011 by the Kerala tourism department. The village is spread over 20 acres. The village has a rich collection of the traditional arts and crafts of Kerala, the surrounding states and even international artisans. All crafts from toy making, weaving, metal working, sculpture among others are represented. I purchased two handwoven lungis. We also purchased various natural products from a cooperative based in Vadakara, north Kerala. The quality of these products is very good. The jasmine soap has a great aroma. There is also a play area for children and adults with various rides.
