Kozhikode was ranked eleventh among Tier-II Indian cities in job creation by a study conducted by ASSOCHAM in 2007. Kozhikode was one of the major trade centres on the Malabar Coast of India during medieval times and served as an active port for Chinese, Arab, and Persian merchants. During its golden age, Kozhikode was dubbed "the City of Spices" for its role as the major trading point of eastern spices such as black pepper (Kolattunithura), cardamom (Chavakkad), cloves (Kozhakkuttam) and nutmeg ("Nagarakatte"). It rose to significance as a trading centre after the port Muziris around Kodungallur got destroyed by massive flooding of Periyar in 1341. The earliest documented references to Calicut are available from 14th century .
