Ramanattukara is situated 16 km south of Calicut city. Its location on the intersection of National Highway 17 and National Highway 213 had already given its economy a boost. This town also benefited when the Calicut International Airport came up, as this town is located on the Airport Road. To top it up, now the NH bypass for Calicut city starts from here.

This town acts as a commercial center for the nearby smaller villages and towns. As is the case with any other Indian city, Calicut is also experiencing rapid growth. And the city limits have expanded almost up to Ramanattukara now. So new-age buildings for malls, hotels, restaurants are becoming a common sight here. The distance in between Ramanattukara and Vazhayoor is 8 km.
