Flourishing City - Palakkad


Palakkad derives its name from the combined words “Pala” and “Kaadu”.”Pala” is a tropical tree commonly known as the devil tree whereas “kaadu” means forest. It is believed that the region was once densely covered with these trees and thus got its name. It was one of the last districts to have formed when the state of Kerala was created and was part of the Malabar District of Madras Presidency during the British rule.

Also known as the “Rice Bowl of Kerala”, Palakkad serves as the gateway to Kerala from the north. Palakkad is especially famous for its rice variety known as the “Palakkadan Matta”.The district is the largest in Kerala with a total area of 4480 square kilometres. The district has several dams of which the Malampuzha dam is the largest in the whole state. Built in 1955, it is located in the foothills of Western Ghats and a must-visit picnic spot. Malampuzha Gardens near this region was developed by renowned artist Nek Chand and is the only rock-cut garden in South India. The garden also houses a massive sculpture called the “Malampuzha Yakshi”, built by the reputed sculptor Kanayi Kunjiraman which attracts huge number of visitors to this place.

Dams namely Mangalam Dam, Parambikulam Dam and Pothundi Dam are a few other dams in the district that are also tourist destinations. The Silent Valley National Park, Mailadumpara, Kottayi, Attapadi, Thunchan Gurumadom, Kunchan Smarakom and MeenVallam are a few among many tourist attractions in the district. Kalpathy Cart Festival, Ottapalam Nercha Festival and Retholsavam at Kodumba Subrahmanya Temple are a few unique festivals native to Palakkad that bring in huge number of visitors from across the country.


Palakkad lies near the Palghat Gap in the Western Ghats and it connects Kerala to the plains of Tamil Nadu in the east. It is located around 350 kilometres north of Thiruvananthapuram, the state capital. It shares its border with Malappuram and Thrissur districts on the western side and the Nilgiri Hills on the northern side.
