Malappuram (literally, a land atop hills) is situated 50 km southeast of Kozhikode. Bounded by the Nilgiri hills on the east, the Arabian sea on the west and Thrissur and Palakkad districts on the south, Malappuram is enriched by three great rivers flowing through it - the Chaliyar, the Kadalundi and the Bharathapuzha.
Malappuram has a rich and eventful history. It was the military headquarters of the Zamorins of Kozhikode since ancient times.
This district was the venue for many of the Mappila revolts (uprisings against the British East India Company in Kerala) between 1792 and 1921.
The hill country has also contributed much to the cultural heritage of Kerala. It was a famous centre for Hindu-Vedic learning and Islamic philosophy.
