Pattambi is a town, Taluk and Municipality at the western end of the Palakkad district of the state of Kerala, South India. It is also the headquarters of the Pattambi Taluk.The well known and second longest river in Kerala, Bharathappuzha or River Nila flows through Pattambi town. Pattambi, one of the biggest towns in Palakkad district, connects roads from three districts – Palakkad, Malappuram and Thrissur. Situated on the banks of Bhratapuzaha, the place is known for its cultural contributions.
Like other towns in Valluvanad, people in the old generation depended on agriculture, but now gulf money is the main source of income in many families. Pattambi is surrounded by a number of small villages and bus services are available to every corner. As the Shornur - Mangalapuram railway track lies on the north and Bharathapuzha flows on the south, development works cannot be undertaken in a big way and hence all such works are concentrated at Mele Pattambi on the Palakkad road.
A long pending demand by various organizations and political parties for the formation of Pattambi Taluk, is now realised. Now, the people at the western border of the district can save their time and money, who would otherwise had to travel to Ottapalam, which the present Taluk headquarters.

Mannarkad
Mannarkkad (also known as Mannarghat or Manarghat) is a beautiful town in Palakkad district of Kerala state, south India. It is the headquarters of Mannarkkad Taluk, and is the biggest revenue village in Kerala. It is situated 40 km from the district headquarters, at the north east end of the district, on the way to Kozhikkode(NH213) and on the foots of Western Ghats. Silent Valley (a tropical evergreen rain forest with an unbroken evolutionary history of 50 million years) is only 66 km from Mannarkkad.

Mannarkkad has memories of the invasion of Tippu Sultan and Mopila riot. In 1921, hundreds of people lost their lives.The former Ruler/Desavazhi of Mannarkkad is known as 'Mannarkkadu Muppil Nair'. He was a 'Samantha' under 'Valluvakonathiri' of Valluvanadu. The famous novel of Malayatoor Ramakrishnan 'Ponni' is based on the 'Adivasis' of Mannarkkadu. The Sandalwood smuggler 'Veerappan' used 'Shiruvanni Forests' of Mannarkkadu Muppil Nairs as his shelter.

The population of Mannarkkad is estimated at 150,000+. Mannarkkad has an agri-based economy; main agriculture produce consists of natural rubber, coconut, areca nut, banana, plantain, nutmeg, pepper and rice. But due to inordinate use of chemicals, the natural ecosystem has been adversely affected. But over a decade of control, the town has revived many almost extinct natural species of reptile, butter flies, fresh water fish and other organisms.

70%-80% of the agri-income is earned by 20%-25% of the population. Of the rest, 10% are into trading and the remaining 65% of the total population are below slightly above or below the poverty line.

The town has for ages attracted immigrants from all over and is an amazing community of people who speak multiple languages including Kannada, Telugu, Tulu, Tamil etc. For this reason, you will find shades of a metropolitan city in terms of harmony among multiple cultures in this rather small town. Within Kerala, it had been also a destination for immigrants from southern Kerala seeking their fortune in rubber plantation sector.

Nestled between two rivers kunthippuzha and nellippuzha, Mannarkkad (Mannarghat) valley is famous for its natural beauty. Silent Valley Rain forests and the Attappadi high range add grandeur to the scenery. It is a common destination for trekkers.

Mannarkkad is well connected by road to all other parts of Kerala. NH 213 connecting Kozhikkode and Palakkad passes through the town. The nearest railway stations to the town are Palakkad Jn (40 km), Ottapalam (40 km) and Shornur Jn (44Km). The nearest airports to the town areCalicut Airport (80 km), and Coimbatore Airport (90 km).

Cherpulassery
Cherpulassery is an important town in Valluvanad. It is situated 17 kilometers away from Ottapalam on the north-west side, exactly in between Pattambi, Perintalmanna and Ottapalam. Majority of the population are Hindus and Muslims, who are reputed for communal harmony. Vellinezhi village near Cherpulassery is very famous for Kathakali artists. Cherpulassery is an important place for various melams in chenda, thimila, maddalam, etc. and late Aliparamba Sivarama Poduval, Mattanur Sankaran Kutty, Cherpulassery Sivan etc. are well known artists in playing these instruments. Unlike other places, people in this area enjoy such melams at its best, even at odd hours.


People in the area mostly depended on agriculture in olden days, but the situation has changed now. Due to non-availability of agricultural labourers, many crops have disappeared. In 1980's and 90's there was a big flow of youths to the gulf for employment. At least one member or more in each family are working in the gulf region. Hence many people depend on gulf money and very few on business, agriculture or govt./ private employment. As a result, a number of banks in public & private sector have opened their branches at cherpulassery. The flow of foreign currency has increased many folds.


However, Cherpulassery is far behind in health care and educational institutions. Though there are a couple of medical clinics and labs, there is a lack of good hospital. Recently, a private medical college has started functioning at Mangod on the Palakkad road. People depend on Vaniyamkulam or Perintalmanna hospitals for a specialised treatment and surgery. Similarly, there are no colleges or good professional educational institutions, except a few technical couses and computer courses. Therefore, students depend on colleges at Pattambi, Perintalmanna, Ottapalam, Palakkad etc. after their high school. However, a couple of parallel colleges work here. An English-medium school also functions along Pattambi road.
Cherpulassery is a small and beautifultown in Palakkad district of Kerala state, south India. It is in Ottapalam Taluk, known for its eminent and prolific contributions to the world of culture. Geographically, it is a tri-junction of roads converging from three towns -- Ottapalam, Pattambi and Perinthalmanna. A couple of kilometres north to the place, at Kacherikkunnu, the semi-hilly road also branches off eastwards to the district headquarter town of Palakkad. Cherpulassery has a known government school, the foundation for which was laid by Mahatma Gandhi. It has also a couple of leading hospitals in the locality.Presently it is a Muncipality with population of 30,000.

The best option for Shoranur is a triangular station concept only. With new proposal of developing main junctions to world standards, Shoranur Jn can be developed in PPP model with shopping complex, mall, multiplexes, etc and enough parking spaces.

Political will is required to convince - which we Plakkadans are lagging way behind. Hoping for the best....!!!!

In fact, Cherpulassery is the middle point of erstwhile Valluvanad region and more or less equidistant from major towns like Ottappalam, Pattambi, Shoranur, Perinthalmanna & Mannakkad. Cherpulassery has a lot of potential to develop.
