Palakkad

    The ancient history of the District is closely associated with the mythical hero Lord Parasurama.


    The industrial potential of a district depends primarily on the availability of resources, which can be utilized for forward integration as raw materials for industries. The availability of all types of transport facilities viz. Road, Rail and Water are the factors favourable to the district. Palakkad district is blessed with many resources like agricultural products, minerals, horticultural products, cattle and livestock and forest products. The major agricultural products include rice, coconut, banana, groundnut, cotton etc. and they offer maximum employment potential to the society. There are opportunities for the development of tourism with tourist spots like Malampzhua, Nelliampathy and Silent Valley National Park in Attappady, Siruvani, Veezhumala, Kunchiyarpathi, Kanhilam, Attappady and Alanellur.

Palakkad, one of the interior districts of Kerala, is unique in many respects. The continuity of the majestic Western Ghats, which stretches over, 1000 kms is broken at Palakkad gap with a width of 32 kms. On either side of the gap are the giant Nilgiris and Anamalais. The climate of the district is greatly influenced by this gap, as it enables the north- east winds to blow spreading its wings right up to the cost throughout the breadth of the gap. Since the district gets the benefit of south-west and north east winds, rainfall is heavy in both the seasons and consequently the Palakkad district has extensive paddy fields and is aptly known as the granary of Kerala. The eastern region of the district has high mountains, extensive ravines and dense forests. In the southern part, there are a number of estates.

The district covers 13.5% of the total forest area in the State and 37% of the total ecological fragile land (EFL) in the State. The total forest area in Palakkad district is 1527.35 sq km, out of these 51.77 sq km belonging to EFL zone, 276 sq km is dense forest, 693 sq km is moderate forest and the rest 606 sq km is open forest land.

Considering the physical features, the district is divided into two natural divisions-midland and highland. The midland region consists of valleys and plains. It leads up to the highland which consists of high mountain peaks, long spurs, extensive ravines, dense forests and tangled jungles. Midland is thick with coconut, areca nut, cashew, pepper, rubber and paddy cultivation. The soil is laterite in the hill and mid land regions. Ottappalam Taluk lies in the midland and highland regions. The road and rail links between Kerala and Tamil Nadu pass through the Palakkad gap.
