Brief About Malappuram District
General Features

Bounded by the Nilgiris hills on the East and the Arabian Sea on the west, the district of Malappuram literally the land atop the hills, is remarkable for its unique natural beauty. Perched among the undulating hills and the meandering rivers that flow to reach the coconut-fringed seacoast, the land conceals a unique and eventful history. Home to the khilafath movement and the mappila revolts, which questioned the British authority in India, Malappuram was the military headquarters of the Zamorins of Kozhikode since ancient times.

The hill country also contributed much to the cultural artistic traditions of the state. The mosques and temples of the land are known for their spectacular festivals. The land of great poets and writers, political and religious leaders, the district has carved a unique place of its own in the history of Kerala.

Malappuram district was formed on 16th of June 1969. The Nilgiris of Tamil Nadu in the east, Arabian sea in the west, Kozhikode and Wayanad districts in the north and Palakkad and Thrissur districts in the South. The district has a geographical area of 3550 Sq.Kms, which is 9.13 per cent of the total area of the state. With regard to area, Malappuram district ranks 3rd in the state.

The location of Malappuram district is 75 to 77 east longitude and 100-to 120-north latitude, in the geographical map.

The low land stretches along the seacoast, the midland in the center and the highland region towards the east and north eastern parts. The topography of the district is highly undulating; starting from the hilltops covered with thick forests on the east along the Nilgiris. It gradually slopes down to the valleys and the small hills, before finally ending on the sandy flat of luxuriant coconut groves in the west.
