About Palakkad District


District Palakkad was incorporated on June 16, 1969. The ancient history of Palakkad is a mystery. According to William Logan, author of the Malabar Handbook, the Pallava dynasty in Canchi may have entered Malabar in the 2nd or 3rd century AD. One of their headquarters was a place called "Palakkad", which could be the current Palakkad. Malabar was invaded by many of the rulers of ancient South India. For centuries it was dominated by Permal. They had some powerful "Utaya vars" under them that had authority in their respective territories. After Permal's rule, the land was divided among these chiefs.
